Cup of Joe and a book

As I am sitting here this morning thinking about my simple pleasure  and my Thankful Thursday post, they both fit so nicely together.  I love it when that happens.

My simple pleasure this morning is that first cup of coffee while spending time with the Lord. 

And being thankful for the opportunity to enjoy it, as so many women don’t have that opportunity with having to run out to work. 

Now that is the “best part of waking up”.

Feel free to join us for Simple Pleasures hosted by Dayle at  A Collection of This and That  and Thankful Thursday hosted by Iris at  Grace Alone

I always am blessed too when I visit you.

Amen! That first sip of coffee is like ... indescribable to a coffee lover, and when paired with the Good Book, you know it's going to be a great day.

I love having you at the Simple Pleasures party.

I never thought of it that way.. Blessed we are to be able to spend the morning with a nice cup of coffee while reading The Word!

Its the simple things in life that make all the difference.

What a good way to start the day! The bible says "early will I seek thee."

Thanks for the reminder!

I so enjoy my first cup of coffee of the day while spending time with the Lord! The coffee just tastes better during that time, doesn't it? Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today and sharing in my joy about what God has done for our daughter!

Living for Him, Joan

Thank you for visiting my blog this morning. It's nice to meet you.

I agree with you about being thankful to not have to run out of the house every morning. I haven't worked outside the home since I had my first child back in 1990, and I never cease to give thanks for the hardworking husband who makes that possible (and, of course, the Lord who is the REAL One who made it possible.) It's a blessing to not have to rush around every morning.

Have a lovely day,

that is so cool how you put the cross in the middle between the coffee and the Bible.

That is a wonderful simple pleasure. The very best actually.

We are really blessed.


Debbie said...

Cindy, I couldn't agree more! I thank God so often that (right now at least) I have the leisure of a slow morning with a good cup of coffee.

Loved this simple pleasure. I'm late getting to the end of the linky list this week, but the added pleasure for me is that I will go to sleep thinking pleasurable thoughts!

I can't think of a better way to wake up. What a blessing to be able to do this in the mornings.

Joan said...

A lovely way to wake up. There seems to be a reading theme on Simple Pleasures this week.

Yes, I agree, you are lucky and you are blessed. I ran to work for a long time, just a newly SAHM.

I always try to start my day reading my bible and praying. It makes for a wonderful start to my day.
