A Wife Loved Like The Church

Simple Friday Joys

Posted on: September 9, 2011

It’s been an emotionally draining week for me. I wish I had a reason, other than being 8 months pregnant, but I don’t. I told Jonathan yesterday my tank is empty, especially with being around other people. Jonathan took the girls on his own to our church small group, while I stayed home to recharge. I read through Luke, and meditated on Christ’s words. It was healing and good for my soul. I was reminded of all the little blessings that make up my life.


Wearing a cardigan in the morning, because it’s only 62 degrees.

Sleeping with the windows open.

Spending the morning at the park.

Receiving hilarious emails from Jonathan that lighten my mood.

Text messaging with friends who don’t live nearby.

Having quiet time under the stars.


When I step back, there are so many things I have to be grateful for. Sadly, I often over look them, because I’m too busy focusing on the things that aren’t going right. But, it’s the simple joys that make up a really good day. And a really good life.


What is your Friday Joy?

I love your list of things that bring you joy. I’m guilty of the same thing…pushing forward through life without taking a moment to count the simple joys. This week has been emotionally draining for me too…but I’m not pregnant so I don’t know what my issue is. haha!

I love your honesty and I can relate. I’m not pregnant but I’d like to be and sometimes i get down in the dumps of self pity. I’m so glad your hubby gave you some time to recharge – every momma needs that every once in a while :).

8 months pregnant, and 62 degrees? In September? Joy, indeed! Praying for an easy last month (and no, I’m not trying to make a cruel joke!)

I love this Sarah! You’re such an inspiration for me as a wife, mother, and Christian. I’m glad you go to fill up, wear a cardigan, read under the stars, and open the windows at night!

My Friday joy is trusting in God’s forgiveness and grace. We had a tough evening yesterday and it was lovely to wake up cleansed and start over. Have a great weekend!

Amen to that! This is a common theme in blog posts today. I think many women in the blogosphere are feeling weary. Glad you had some time to recharge. 🙂


AMEN! My Friday joy is having an evening with my hubby and son…and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies fresh out of the oven! 😀
