You know that feeling of triumph when a long-held wish finally comes true? It happened to me last Sunday . . . and the Sunday before.
See, I’ve always wanted to bring coffee to church. It’s a simple yet forbidden desire.
Until the shift toward life at home turned a couch into a pew, Facebook LIVE into church, and my wish into reality. It’s been a bright spot in a lot of gray, making it perfect for this mini-blog devoted to revealing joy in everyday moments.
But what I thought would generate the most joy—the smell and taste of French press coffee from my cow mug—was only second to what my other senses noticed:
- Seeing my family in their jammies “attending” Sunday Mass.
- Hearing the priest give a thoughtful homily that included a C.S. Lewis quote.
- Feeling the warmth of a blanket and my daughter resting against me.
I looked at each of my loved ones, capturing this moment of joy that had prevailed over fear. And then, just as decadent as my next sip of coffee, I let the gratitude flow.
Hope you enjoyed this mini-blog—just the right length for a quick dose of perspective! If you have a moment of joy to add from the last week, please comment below and keep the conversation going!
