{Everyday in May} - These are a few of my favorite things

We have a sign hanging in our entry way that says 
"The best things in life aren't things"
While I do have a couple of things on here that are "THINGS" People are most important. 

The Lord - He is so precious to me. The fact that he has chosen me, makes me astonished. I love spending time in His word, especially on a porch with a cup of coffee :) 

My Husband - God gave me such a wonderful man! I'm so glad he is in my life!! He always knows how to make me laugh!

I have the best family in the world!! I love them all so much. I love that we enjoy spending time together! I'm truly blessed by the love of these people, who are there for me no matter what :) 

These chidlren are so precious, what a joy it is to be able to serve and love them!

Running - I love to run. What a joy and a gift!!

This is a view from my parents dock at their lake home. This is my favorite place. I love to sit here!! I have so many great memories at the lake, with my favorite people :) 

My Bestie - Betha...we haven't known each other forever, but I feel like we have know each other forever. She has been there for me through a lot of things and has always supported me. I'm sad we don't live closer. 

My friends. Not everyone is pictured, but I have great friends. Friends that sharpen me and encourage me!!

Scents and Seasons - I'm a sucker for a great smelling candle. I especially love seasons and love to change my candles based on the season (I don't have this one burning right now - It's not Fall, but fall is my favorite season.)

I grew up on a farm in Minnesota - What an awesome thing. Farming is a great way to see God's faithfulness and His provision. It's so easy to see how little control we have and how faithful He is!!

What are your favorite things?

Love your list- I am always blown away by the fact that God chose me too!

And I am completely jealous you grew up on a farm. That is actually my dream life. I am pretty sure its because I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie as a kid.

You are so sweet! I love the farm life. My oldest niece is obsessed with little house on the prairie and wants to be a missionary so she can live like that. :)
