hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Good, Good Always

Good, Good Always

Today's joyful moment was music. Passionate, wonderful, soul-lifting music.

One of my friends was interested in visiting Sanctuary Church, so we went together this morning--and man alive, did the worship team do an amazing job. Like, goosebumps good. Like, couldn't stop smiling good. Like, 100% pure joy. I can't even describe how beautiful their voices were, the harmony, the instruments, the absolute energy that radiated from the stage. It was one of the most powerful song moments I've ever experienced. I wish I'd taken a video.  

Unfortunately I cannot leave you with the sounds we heard (ps. My friend was like, "Wow. Do they always sound like that??") , but it's still playing in my head. The main chorus is, "You are good, good always," hence the title of this post. 

Praise God for the gift of joyful song and for the musical talents He bestowed on those lovely people who shared them with us today.  

In other news, maybe not the most "joyful" moment, but the most hilarious moment happened this evening when Jeremy and I were at dinner. Today I did something I've never done before ("taken home leftovers?" Nope!) and DROPPED MY PHONE INTO MY FOOD whilst trying to photograph it.  

It was an Italian sausage appetizer, served on a skillet, beside a giant knife, and somehow the phone slipped from my fingers and landed in the sausage.*  What was even better was the fact that the waitress saw this happening from another table and gasped as loudly as I did, which caused half the restaurant to pause their conversation and look to see what happened.

I felt like such a milennial. But it was so funny.

the phone survived. The sausage was eaten.
