Why I Count It All JOY Wednesday

I am feeling my age, but I am counting it all JOY that I have been married to the same wonderful man for 28 years!
My husband knows my sins, but I am counting it all JOY that he loves me anyway!
God knows my sins, but I am counting it all JOY that He loves me anyway!
No more sleeping in, but I count it all JOY that I have a new job!
I am a certified, experienced teacher, not close to retirement yet, and I am working as a teacher's assistant, "T.A.", but I am counting it all JOY!
This job came to me, like the job I had last year did, so I am believing that it is all in His perfect plan!
I don't live near my childhood/highschool best friend,
but I count it all JOY that she still texts me
when she has an important prayer request.
She texted me the other day to let me know
that they thought her Mom had a "small stroke".
I am full of JOY that it was a reaction to
being on sinus medication for a long time,
and not a stroke!
ReJOYce in the Lord ALWAYS. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious abut anything, but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7
