It is Well with My Soul

Friday Five: It Is Well With My Soul Edition

kathrynzj offers today's FF, saying: We lead privileged lives.

True, some are more privileged than others but the fact that we are
communicating right now via technological devices puts us in the
privileged category.

There are many perks in my life for which I give thanks and then 
there are some that make everything right in the world during the 
moment I am enjoying them. I'm wondering what a few of those 
things - five to be specific - are for you.

To help you along here are just three of mine that I will write more
about on my blog: drinking coffee out of a real mug, walking into my
home after the domestic goddess has been there, participating in
the RevGalBlogPals Big Events.

SUNSHINE--it is well with my soul when I am sitting in a big window
(or, if it's just the right temperature, outside) with sun shining full on
me. Mmmmm, soaking in that warmth and light heals my entire being,
including my soul.

WRITING--it is well with my soul when I have the time and space to write,
write well, and know I'll have a chance to share what I've put my whole
self into (e.g.: sermon-writing and preaching).

HOME--it is well with my soul when I am in the space that I call home.
When everything is in its place, and the things that lift my spirit surround
me, I can just be.

BATH TUB--it is well with my soul when I can "take a tubby"-warm water,
good book, nobody around and no to-do list.

DRIVING/SINGING--it is well with my soul when I can sing at the top of
my lungs with nobody around to hear the lyrics (and notes) that I make
up. Sad mood, joyful mood, angry mood, 'tude mood--singing!

...and my KITTERS and being able to lounge late in BED and spending
time with good FRIENDS and, without a doubt, whenever JAMIE and I
can just love each other...
