shabbat

Someone once said, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life; go, and make the most of it.” Wise words, and advice worth taking. So I am going, and beginning this day where I began this blog – with the concept of Sabbath rest. I’m re-reading Mudhouse Sabbath slowly, with good coffee…

na’aseh v’nishma

na’aseh v’nishma

There’s a concept called na’aseh v’nishma; which means: “we will do and we will hear” or “we will do and we will understand.”* It’s about doing your faith, and coming to understand what it is you already believe as you practice it.

what would Jesus say to me?

what would Jesus say to me?

Faintnot and Rachel have tagged me in a meme entitled “what would Jesus say to me?” Good question… The longer question of the meme is this: if you met Jesus in person, the way people in the Bible did, what would He say to you?  I am torn between three responses…. 1) I have absolutely…

I wish you could be here in this moment. It isn’t the lights, and it isn’t the band. It isn’t the phenomenal speakers, or the tech crew that’s worked so hard to pull this Kongress off. It’s the Presence of God in an arena turned temple, and in the temple of His people. Looking around…

Meet Happy

Thanks for visiting!

Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated. Sometimes finding it can be - but happiness itself is pretty simple, and it's often found in the simplest of things: good food, good books, and good company. So those are the things I write about, along with a few other things that really matter to me, including faith and feminism.

A bit about me: My name is Happy. I have an amazing talent for misplacing my keys, a deep appreciation for whomever looked at the coffee bean and thought, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I roasted this?", and road trips to Michigan are pretty much my favorite.

Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
