Delight in the New Year!

The new year came upon our household pretty quietly.
Luckily, our kids are still young enough to not fully grasp the exciting prospect and promise of a brand new year, so when it was bedtime around 8ish, we all drifted to sleep without a hitch and woke up to a new year.
Which felt eerily similar to a same-old, run-of-the-mill, everyday day.

But that's okay!

I've got delight on the brain.
Ever since last semester's EHS course, delight has been my buzz-word.
And last week when I took Dayspring's quiz to discover your word of the year, delight was mine!
So now, delight as a buzz-work is more apparent than ever, and it has become my mantra for 2019.
I am going to look for joy in the small things.
Pay attention to details.
Invoke happiness.

I'm going to take this home and let Penny color it in.
She will find all sorts of delight in that.
"Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalms 37:4

"Oh, how sweet the light of day, and how wonderful to live in the sunshine! Even if you live a long time, don't take a single day for granted. Take delight in each light-filled hour, remembering that there will also be many dark days and that most of what comes your way is smoke." Ecclesiastes 11:7-8
