happily ever after: JOY

Saturday, September 26, 2009


So a new friend has got me thinking more about joy.
In all things, Joy.
And when I see that word 'JOY'... I think of where it comes from.
It DOES NOT come from my Sweetie,
it DOES NOT come from my boys,
it DOES NOT come from my morning cup of coffee.
It comes from HIM, from His Word ... and no where else.
I may get side tracked thinking these things bring me such joy, but really I know that
I'm joyful in them because of HIM.
If it weren't for the presence of the Holy Spirit in my heart, I would not be able to find JOY in anything.
And can I get an Amen?!

I've shared it before and I'm going to share it again, it has been my life clinging to and the cause of great rejoicing verse as of late...

"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is His faithfullness." Lamentations 3:22-23

Praying that all my loved ones; friends & family are finding that JOY today and always.

(and to Cheryl, I've SO enjoyed getting to know you better. thanks for being a blessing.)
