{Five Things bringing me Joy // 2018 // vol. 1}

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
- Romans 12:12 (NIV)

It's time for one of my favorite link-ups...Five Things Bringing Me Joy Right Now! We absolutely loved reading all of the posts last month and sharing in the simple joys of life with you. Life can get so busy yet mundane and it's always good to find the joy in the day to day. We all have something bringing us joy, right? We would love for you to join us in sharing your joy.

Join BethStephanieHeather and I each month by simply choosing 5 things that are bringing joy to your life and make it a blog post about it. Link-up the post with us on the fourth Friday of every month. This makes it perfect for a Five on Friday post as well. Also, we will be choosing a guest host each month from those that linked up the previous month. Grab the graphic above and join us!

o n e | All of the time we've spent at home lately. We recently made an intentional effort to spend more time at home and it's been so good for all of our souls. We are usually a family that is on the go, go, go. And coming off the holidays we needed a complete 'busy detox'. My heart has been so full just spending time at home with my loves! I have been loving the rhythm of these slower paced days and lifestyle!

t w o | My sweet family! If it were up to me I wouldn't celebrate my birthday at all. I'm just not one for big celebrations when it comes to my birthday. But, my precious family is so sweet to always make it special for me. Thank you to my in-laws and my sweet boys so, so much. You all are so dear and precious to me and bring my heart overflowing joy. 

t h r e e |  Watching Mason play basketball! It's so exciting and fun. He doesn't have a competitive bone in his body, but he's out there and playing! And we are so proud of him. He really enjoys the games. We'll be moving on to soccer next. I'm so excited he wants to play soccer again. 

f o u r |  Everything in this picture; being a Mrs., cozy days at home, and reading The Word. And not pictured, being a mama. All of these things bring me so much joy that I can barely contain it! 

f i v e |  And because I always share a song, today I am sharing Do It Again by Elevation Worship. I'm sure I've shared about this song many times before, but I can't help it. It brings me so much hope and joy. Elevation Worship is playing constantly in my home and in the Jeep. Their music just moves me. But this song. Oh, this song. Especially this part:

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I'm still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed me yet

I've seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I'll see You do it again
You made a way, where there was no way
And I believe, I'll see You do it again

Friends, if you have mountains in your life just turn your eyes to the Lord. Put your faith and trust in Him. Nothing is too big for our God. Nothing.

What five things are bringing you joy right now?
