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 the God of HOPE, PEACE, and LOVE has me in the palm of HIS hand!!
I am filled with JOY because yesterday we celebrated Dan’s birthday with good food and fellowship and tomorrow we will celebrate Adam and Isaac’s birthday with good food and lots of laughter!!
I am filled with JOY because there is so much JOY in the unexpected if you will just recognize it!!
I am filled with JOY because even though we got hit with a curve ball last week, the Lord met us there, held us up, and definitely brought us to the JOY on the other side!!
I am filled with JOY because I have an awesome husband who does everything in his power to make my life easier!!
I am filled with JOY because we had a long weekend and now a short week!!  Yippee!!
I am filled with JOY because it’s almost fall and I love all things fall - colors, pumpkin cupcakes/bread/pie/coffee..., beautiful days and cool evenings, I could just go on and on!!
I am filled with JOY because just like the weather seasons change, so do the seasons of life.  If you love the season you are in, enJOY it to the fullest, if you don’t like the season you are in, hang on tight, things will definitely be changing!!!
I am filled with JOY because we are off to a great start with school.  The boys are working hard and doing great!!  
I am filled with JOY because you guys link up week after week and help me spread the JOY, one blog at a time!!  Love you all!!
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13
What is filling you with JOY lately??
Counting it all Joy!!
