the smiling faces of the precious little ones in your life?
I do, but then why I am crying?
I am crying because my own little ones have grown up.
I am crying because I miss my Dad.
. . .but I really am filled with JOY that my children have grown up,
that they are "walking in the way of the Lord",
that Jase is spending this week on a mission trip
that Kalyn is spending the next five days
with her boyfriend's family,
who are special friends of ours,
that she gets to enjoy 2 bowl games!-
the Alamo Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl,
and will get to enjoy San Antonio and Arizonia,
that Josh and Adrianne are such wonderful parents,
that we have these precious grandchildren,
that we live close to my Mom,
that my husband loves me and I love him,
that I know God has special plans for 2011.
I am filled with JOY to
begin a new year of
and to strive to
and be a peacemaker.
Rejoice 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 about anything,
but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds
in Christ Jesus.
What is filling you with JOY today?
