I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “hidden,” I love spending my Thursday nights with my FMF friends. I adore these people! But I missed them this week since I was spending the week at the ND State Fair with my sissy.
I have been busy spending the week with my sister at the North Dakota State Fair. I love spending time with those I love and running into friends, family, etc. There were all sorts of hidden joys along the way.
I found hidden joy as I watched two church youth jump on this bouncy jump thing. I don’t know what it was called, but they were attached to a bungee cord and got to bounce high.
Hidden joy as I learned a new job at our church’s fair booth. We sell fresh made pies, made fresh every morning, hamburgers, etc. I learned how to be the cashier and loved it.
Hidden joy as my sister and I listened to awesome music at fun concerts: LoCash, Old Dominion, Kenny Chesney, and Jake Owen. Jake Owen was an awesome performer. He did the whole concert barefoot.
Hidden joy watching all the kids and families enjoying the fair.
Hidden joy in petting tiny baby goats and seeing all the farm animals.
Hidden joy in watching my mom’s face as we watched the parade and the racing pigs. Pure unspeakable joy!!!
Hidden joy even in eating yummy fair food. A Carmel Apple, roasted almonds, fry bread, cotton candy, homemade pie, shaved ice, Icees and mini donuts. I think I am seriously done for a year for eating fair food.
Hidden joy as I think about how awesome and blessed I am.
Hidden joy as I think of all of you dear friends and family. I’ve missed so many of you!!!
The truth is there is hidden joy all around us…all the time, we just have to open our eyes to see it…to see the ways that God is active and moving in the world.
