As has been evident over the last few weeks, I have a lot of things that I enjoy. I love God, who has provided so many blessings in my life. I love my amazing family. My husband is my best friend, and I have 2 great kids. I love to read, but have actually spent more time in crafting pursuits since joining the blogging world. I love spending time in my crafty space making fun little projects.
So for all of you who have been following me for awhile, but not since the beginning, you may be wondering where in the world I came up with a name like DJ's Sundries. For the original post on this please click here- What's in a Name?.
Now over the past few weeks, I've been trying to come up with a catchy phrase. You know like "From my heart to yours" (K. Andrew), "Enjoy the Moments" (Megan Elizabeth)... etc. As I thought over the last few week's posts and thought about the name of my blog, I realized that it's been there all along. Have you noticed all the 'little things' I've been posting? Treat boxes, peach butter, etc? That's when it hit me. We need to learn to enjoy the little things that God has placed in our lives. A baby's first smile. An "I love you" text. A little note tucked in a lunch box. An unexpected candy bar or new pen. How about a Bible verse that sticks in your head and you just can't help but share.
But enjoying the little things actually implies more to me. Not only do I need to enjoy the little things, but I also need to share the little things to bring joy to others. So how about you? Do you enjoy the little things? Do you look for ways to please others with the little things?
I have decided to post a challenge that will continue through the rest of September. I want you to look for the little things to enjoy. Then I want you to bless someone else with the little things in life. So this is what I plan to do. I plan to send a special little thing to two of my followers. How will I choose? I will choose from one comment below (randomly of course) where you share a little thing you enjoy. I also want to know about 1 little thing that you share with others. I will send the second little thing to one commenter who shares this. You have until September 30, 11:59pm MST to leave your comments. In the meantime:
Take some time to enjoy the little things today.
