Welcome to erinsdailydelight.com! I’m Erin! I’ve been recording my daily delights online since May 2010 and in my journals and with others since the summer of 2008. I have spent a lot of time this year pondering how I can be more joyFULL (my word for 2017…more on that later) and contribute good to the world. The repeated impression I’ve had over and over again is, “write more.”
So here we are. Instead of just writing more for myself and a handful of friends and family, I decided it was time to leap to a .com address and to share my delights with whoever feels they’d benefit from it. Delighting daily is all about recognizing the hand of the Lord in your life, being grateful for the things you’re learning and experiencing and sharing that with others.
Whether you’re trying to see the good, be the good, share the good, be uplifted, feel love, feel loved, be happy, become better, experience joy, feel hope, develop optimism…whatever it is that you’re seeking, you can find it. I have learned that by being intentional in seeking the good, delighting in the little things, recognizing the Lord’s hand in your life, and seeking to see with eyes of gratitude for the abundance that is in your life–you will see it!
I love how in the book of Matthew, in the New Testament, Jesus teaches, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that seeketh recieveth; and he that seekers finders; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
If we ask, it will be given. If we seek, we shall find. And if we knock, it shall be opened. If you will ask to see the Lord’s hand in your life, to find something to delight in, to recognize the ways the Lord is blessing you…you will find it.
I hope that as you read some of the things that I find that I delight in that you will recognize and share the ways you delight in the Lord and in your life.
