Why I "Count it all JOY" Wednesday!

My bloggy friend Angel is hosting a new "meme" (which I don't know what meme means if you could tell me I would appreciate it...LOL) called "Why I count it all JOY Wednesday". I thought I would try it today. I love celebrating our JOYS & our victories!!

I am filled with JOY because my sister & my niece came into town this week & I get to spend some time with them!

I am filled with JOY because last night we had our 3rd Pastor's wives mentoring meeting at my house & we sat by the pool...ate homemade ice cream with fresh fruit & had such an encouraging filled time together. I love these girls & I know this is what GOD has called me to do right now in my life!!

I am filled with JOY because I have the most amazing husband who has been working so hard on tiling Lauren's bathroom this week & trying really hard to complete this project of ours!!

I am filled with JOY when I am sitting on our deck & my kids are giggling together swimming in our pool. I love having our's the best family entertainment in the summer!!

I am filled with JOY because my bloggy friend JOY just found out she was pregnant after trying for so long!!

I am filled with JOY that GOD has placed so many people in my life that are encouraging me to become the woman of GOD that he has called me to be!!

I am filled with JOY to be a part of the Summer Health Challenge at our church!

I am filled with JOY because I am going on a date with my Hubs tonight to celebrate our 17th Anniversary...FINALLY!! 

I am filled with JOY for so many reasons....but mostly because GOD loves me for who I am & He shows me grace & mercy daily. 

Come on...join me & many others on Wednesdays to celebrate our JOYS!!
Be JOYful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Please share atleast one JOY you have!!


  1. Oh the JOY is flowing out of you :)

    meme means something that has caught on and spread through many ~ not the exact definition but I hope you get the jist. I am wanting to start one on my book blog for Christian books and OH.MY.GOSH trying to explain the word meme to Brian was UN BE LEAV A BLE! LOL Just saying the word meme is funny and so last night when I showed him Angel's new button he said what is that for? I just looked at him and said "HER NEW MEME" sheesh :) LOL
