There is a weekly Blog Hop at Scribblings of an Aspiring Writer called Celebrate the Small Things. I like the idea, so on Fridays I will write a blog post about one small thing worth celebrating during the week. Please feel free to visit Scribblings of an Aspiring Writer to see what other people are celebrating.
What small things are you celebrating?

I may from time to time mention something else I am doing. If you want to check these out, that would be great, but there is no pressure.
Here are a few of my first lenses for you to browse.
“The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.” — Bern Williams
I believe the Hymn of Promise is one of the most beautiful, simple, yet theologically correct hymns of our time.

The Lord is risen! Life wins! The end is just the beginning! Hallelujah! AMEN! And so it is.
