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 I serve a great God who never ceases to amaze me!!
I am filled with JOY because last weekend we had near record temperature in the 70’s.  We spent a lot of time outside and really enjoying the sunshine!!
I am filled with JOY because yesterday we had a record snowfall.  In our area of Oklahoma we ranged from 14-21 inches.  Amazing!!
I am filled with JOY because in the midst of that wonderful snowstorm, I had my sweet hubby home, my wonderful kids home, both my grandbabies here, a fire in the fireplace,  stew in the crockpot, brownies in the oven, and games being played...makes for one JOYfilled momma!!
I am filled with JOY because I got to enjoy watching a lot of this...




No matter how big they get, they are never too big for Dad to pull them around on a sled!!

I am filled with JOY because we spent an evening with some of our very best friends!!  Between the two families we have 11 kids not counting the in-laws or the grandbabies.  We always have so much fun and laugh until we hurt!!
I am filled with JOY because Dan is painting the set for a stage at a local church.  He is so extremely talented and I love it when he has the opportunity to use his God given gifts!!
I am filled with JOY because Adam and Isaac are doing a great job playing basketball.  Their team is undefeated!!  Go Arrows!!
I am filled with JOY because even though Shane is leaving in four weeks and it is truly ripping my heart out, he will have two weeks off work to spend with Slaid and our family right before he goes!!
I am filled with JOY because we just bought season passes to Silver Dollar City again.  I love that it is only 4 hours away and we can go up for a weekend at a moments notice and enjoy some much needed family time without spending a fortune!!
I am filled with JOY because the Lord gives us so many things to be JOYful for, we just have to stop long enough to recognize them!!
For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.  Ecclesiastes 3:1

What is bringing you JOY this week?

Counting it all JOY!!
