Why I “Count it all Joy” Wednesday

I am filled with JOY because Ella is feeling better today, Praise Jesus!!
I am filled with JOY because I did the 30-Day Shred-Level 3 after our 3 day mini-vacation and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.  I mean it is definitely hard, but it didn’t kill me!!  
I am filled with JOY because I got new glasses and I love them, I think they are super cute and trendy!!

I am filled with JOY because I got to put some summer blonde in my hair.

Me with my new blonde and glasses!!

I am filled with JOY because our neighborhood pool is open and the boys and I will be living there for a couple of months.
I am filled with JOY because 32 ounce drinks at Quik Trip are 49 cents for the summer!!  YIPPEE, that’s always a treat for the kiddos!!
I am filled with JOY because it is absolutely beautiful outside!!  It is in the 90’s this week, which is abnormally hot but still beautiful!!
I am filled with JOY because when the boys were having a water gun, hose, bucket fight, Drew turned the hose on my sweet hubby and soaked him, LOL!!  He is always such a good sport.  I guess he has to be since they learned all that from US!!

I am filled with JOY because last night a lady I have met only a couple of times, just randomly hugged me and said I was a “JOY”!!  That sure made my day!!!
I am filled with JOY because Jesus is AMAZING!!  He love me at my best and especially at my worst.  He turns my sorrow into JOY and makes my happiness even happier.  He is my best friend when I am doing things His way and even when I think I can do it my way.  
Believing you too are filled with JOY!!
Counting it all Joy!!

I am filled with JOY simply by reading your post today!!!
I LOVE the new glasses. They look similar to mine but yours are blinged up on the sides and mine aren't. LOL!
