Angel is asking us all to join in with her in a new meme today, so go here to share in the JOY!!!
I know I'm going to love "Why I Count It All Joy Wednesday"! At least, I thought I was going to yesterday, when I had this post all ready to go!
I am counting it all JOY, that by the time I finish this Joy-filled post, I will have it memorized!
Here we go again. . .
Our oldest son became a Husband and Daddy before we (his Dad and I) were ready for him to, but he is proving to be doing very well at both. My husband and I are very proud grandparents of beautiful Madasyn Shae and looking forward to the birth of our grandson!
We miss our daughter when she is not with us, but she loves her Summer job at a Christian youth camp, and we enjoy being there with her.
Our youngest son will be leaving soon for a Mission Trip. He has only been on an airplane once. That was a long time ago, and we were with him! He is so passionate about sharing the Gospel, and we know that God will be with him.
"I have no greater JOY than to know that my children are walking in the truth."
III John 4
Because of school budget, I do not have a job. I do not know if I am going to have one, but I am praying that God has something special for me.
"Consider it PURE JOY, my brothers (sisters), whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perserverance.
(lol I am persevering through this post!!!)
Perververance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must BELIEVE and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind." James 1: 2-6This year, for VBS, I was planning to be a "helper" in Crafts. My friend, who I was going to help, called last night to tell me that her husband had changed their vacation time, for them to be out of town the week of VBS. I told her it was fine, to enjoy her vacation with her family. I quickly texted a sweet, mature high school girl, who I became close to last year at youth camp. I asked her if she will help me, and she said she will. I am so excited that I will have Taylor's smiling face and helpful self with me!
Most of all, I count it ALL JOY, because I have a relationship with God. He has made known to me the path of life; (I don't know what is front of me, but He does! I am following Him.) He will fill me with JOY in His presence, with ETERNAL PLEASURES! (Psalm 16:11)
Thank you, Angel for hosting this fun meme! I look forward to doing this every Wednesday, but hope it won't take me as long from now on!
Thank you, Loren, for telling us about Angel!
I hope you all will join in, and give me some comment love, too.
Have a Wonder-ful Wednesday, counting it ALL JOY!
