why i am “Happy”

why i am “Happy”

I had just joined the worship team at a new church, and it was as though a part of me that had been sleeping for a really long time had been given new life. I love to sing, and I love to worship (they are two different things, tho I had yet to learn that)….

I realize that Lucia is still over a month away, but as I’ve been prepping for Sacred Space in December, I came across an excellent post by Kathryn over in the UK about Lucia (also known as St. Lucy’s Day), and this line from a poem she was quoting by Thomas Merton just leapt out…

Psalm 77-ish

This is about what I felt like on Monday… which is kind of a rough go when you’re a worship leader. Thankfully, I wasn’t actually onstage this week – my very talented and capable friend Brandon was leading this week – and bless his heart, as I got progressively sicker in body and soul over…

I have been tagged in a meme – based on a book entitled unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity…and Why It Matters. I haven’t read the book yet, tho my friend Chris and I saw it on a bookshelf at Barnes and Noble not too long ago, and he commented (without having…

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.
