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, 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 it is 2011 and Jesus is still Lord of my life!!
I am filled with JOY because even though Drew has been having severe headaches and we have been to the doctor and to specialists and still don’t have any answers, I have fabulous friends who came together and we laid our hands on him and prayed at the same time that so many of my facebook and bloggy friends were praying and I totally believe he is being healed in Jesus name!!
I am filled with JOY because I have a beautiful daughter who is such a wonderful friend to me!!
I am filled with JOY because we had a wonderful Christmas!!
I am filled with JOY because on Christmas morning all my kids and grandkids were here and they all sat around Dan and I as he read the story of Jesus birth from the bible.  Ella was so cute, when he said Mary became pregnant, she got all excited and said, “It’s baby Jesus in there, how exciting!!”
I am filled with JOY because my son, Shane is on vacation this week and has been home with me.  I so cherish this time with him, he deploys to Afghanistan Feb. 25th!!
I am filled with JOY because I didn’t get to post my JOY post last week, which was sad for me, but I had several email me and tell me they really missed it!!
I am filled with JOY because the boys and I have been making blankets for everyone and we love it!!
I am filled with JOY because I started this meme last summer and love the JOY that has been spread by others!!

"Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name."  Psalm 97:11-12 
Couning it all JOY!!

I love reading your Joy-filled posts.
I can't wait to get back to making things. My craft room is still a disaster after moving.
Still praying for Drew!
HUGS to you my Joyous friend.

Angel, I thought it was so cool, that even though you didn't post last Wednesday, Loren, Steph and I all did! I didn't know what was going with you and was worried, but knew whatever it was, you were spending time with your family. I will continue to pray for Drew. Love your Joy list, as always. I am going to do my post right now.
