Why I "Count it all "JOY" a day late..

After taking a week brain totally forgot about doing this on Wednesday...and I love doing it so please excuse me for the "belated" Joy day!

I am filled with Joy because we are going to the lake for 4th of July. We go every year with my entire family to my sister's lake house. It's so kids love it.

I am filled with Joy because God gave me a Mr. Fix it for a husband...seriously....he can fix about you can't have him!! LOL!

I am filled with Joy when I get to play on my new iphone. heehe!

I am filled with Joy after a week of take a hot shower & sleep in my bed.

I am filled with Joy when I "re"call last week at camp watching my girls worship.

I am filled with Joy that my daughter is such a good babysitter...all the kids love her to baby sit them.

I am filled with Joy to have such great friends that make me laugh.

I am filled with Joy that my sweet Godly friend just found out her daughter is pregnant, not married, but says...we love her....we know God is going to get us thru this with tears in her eyes. Her example as a Godly mom inspires me & shows me that no matter what we can get thru anything with GOD!!

I am filled with Joy when I feel God's spirit come over me & I know He lives in me & the devil can't have a hold on me.

I am filled with Joy because I just found out the dates for the first ever Pastor's wives retreat in Nashville...5-10-11...I seriously can't tell you the JOY I have about that!!!

I am filled with Joy that Angel started this on Wednesdays because sometimes...I am just plain not filled with Joy and this helps me sit down & write all my Joys...I could go on and on.

So what has filled you with JOY this week? Please share....
