I am determined to count it all joy today!! I am blogging from my phone so none of my images or pictures will upload so if you want to link up grab my button from last week (below), make your list and join us for some JOY!!
As I type, I am headed to Oklahoma City to the state going away ceremony for my sons army unit. They are leaving next Friday, the 25th, for a 12-18 month deployment to Afghanistan.
I am filled with JOY because even though his leaving rips my heart out, I am so proud of his heart to serve!!
I am filled with JOY because I have another week with him!!
I am filled with JOY because while he is gone, his baby, Slaid, will be staying with us!!
I am filled with JOY because this week was Valentines Day and continuing tradition, I made a nice dinner for all of us (pictures later) and we got to enjoy extra time together!!
I am filled with JOY because the same God who watches over and protects us at home will be holding Shane in the palm of His hand while he is serving our country overseas!!
I am filled with JOY because it was 75 degrees yesterday and we all went for a walk together!!
I am filled with JOY because there are tulips on my dining room table and they are beautiful!!
I am filled with JOY because my sweet niece is going to have her first baby in August!!
I am filled with JOY because I serve a God of peace and understanding. A God who knows my heart, He knows my Joys and He knows my hurts, He knows my strengths and He knows my challenges, and no matter what He loves me and keeps me and gives me the peace I need!!
Thank you Jesus for keeping you hand on us today as we travel and fins the JOY in all situations!! Thank you for loving me!!
What is filling you with JOY??
Counting it all JOY!!
