Why I Count It All Joy

Welcome to Why I Count It All Joy Wednesday!! To join in on all the JOY, grab my button, make your own JOY list, it doesn’t have to be long, one thing, one hundred things, it doesn’t matter, just find your JOY and come back and link up so you can share it with us.  Remember JOY is contagious!!
I am filled with JOY because even though it has really been a trying week, I have been comforted by my Lord and the knowledge that this too shall pass!!
I am filled with JOY because last week my computer croaked, which was bad.  We took it to the Apple store only to find out that the hard drive, logic board, and something else were bad and needed to be replace, total $1100.00.  I still don’t have it back but the JOY - I have 52 days left on my warranty so it will be like a new computer and it won’t cost me a dime!!!  Praise Jesus!!
I am filled with JOY because I got to take my sweet little granddaughter with me to get our nails done!!
I am filled with JOY because my wonderful husband put up our Christmas lights last weekend.
I am filled with JOY because we are putting up our Christmas tree this weekend!!
I am filled with JOY because my husband loves me as much as I love him all these years later and he isn’t too macho to show it!!
I am filled with JOY because my sweet baby Slaid is finally gaining some weight and getting over his jaundice. 
I am filled with JOY because the boys are working real hard at school so we can have a month off for Christmas break!!
I am filled with JOY because the Lord puts people in our path to challenge us and then He helps us make the decisions He wants us to make, if we only listen!!
I am filled with JOY because Jesus is the Lord of Lords and He brings peace and love and JOY!!
Romans 14:17
God's kingdom isn't a matter of what you put in your stomach, for goodness' sake. It's what God does with your life as he sets it right, puts it together, and completes it with joy. Your task is to single-mindedly serve Christ. Do that and you'll kill two birds with one stone: pleasing the God above you and proving your worth to the people around you.

Counting it all JOY!!

Thank you for that verse Angel. It really a great reminder for what God does with each of us. It's something I needed to hear right now.
