Why I “Count it all Joy” Wednesday



Welcome to Why I Count It All Joy Wednesday!!  To join in on all the JOY, grab my button for your post, make your own JOY list, and link up below this post so others will be able to find your blog!!  Don’t forget to post a link on your blog back to me!!
I am filled with JOY because everyone seems to be enjoying The Cupcake Saga posts!!  
I am filled with JOY because I received a book to review in the mail today and it is by one of my very favorite authors!!  Yay!!
I am filled with JOY because Loren and her family came to church with us on Saturday evening and then we went to dinner!!  Always lots of fun and laughter!!!
I am filled with JOY because my husband is so talented, he never ceases to amaze me!!
I am filled with JOY because after dinner last night, we went to Peach Wave - a self serve frozen yogurt place, YUMMY!!  Almost as good as a cupcake!!
I am filled with JOY because out of all the accounting students at ORU, Drew’s professor from last year called and asked him to become an Accounting Lab Tech - with pay!!  He said he asked him because he had impressive test scores, turned in all his homework when he could have taken passes, was a very solid student that he could always count on in class, and he had also realized that he was very family oriented!!  Boy, he makes me proud!!
I am filled with JOY because when I went to the grocery store over the weekend, I found JOY!!!  It’s even in Pepsi!!

I am filled with JOY because no matter what my idea is, I have the most supportive, encouraging family!!  I just love 'em!!
I am filled with JOY because I have some really big decisions to make and the Lord is showing up and giving me direction, even if it is usually in the middle of the night!!
I am filled with JOY because JOY is contagious and some of you link up and help me spread it week after week!!
You will go out in JOY and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.  Isaiah 55:12
What is filling you with JOY this week?
Counting it all Joy!!
