Count it All JOY Wednesday!!

It's Wednesday & You know what that's time to
 Celebrate Your JOYs!!! 
Join my friend Angel as we share our JOYS!

What brings me JOY this week?

Last week I was able to attend the Catalyst conference with Matt & 15 other 
staff members from FCC. It's hard for me to put into words how much it
filled my heart with JOY to worship with other Pastors & Leaders. 
Matt & I with our 3D glasses they used for announcements. 

I was able to have lunch with 120 other PWs last week...I will
post my pics later. It was one of the best parts of my week!

I love this weather...the windows open & fresh air...ahhh.

The first baby on the Stout side since my son 9 years ago! 
Don't you just want to kiss Jaxx's cheeks? 
My cousin Cory & his sweet wife Lacey had their first baby last week!

My MIL came & brought some cookies but they had pecans in them...
and since I'm a no pecan brat...she brought me a 
Starbucks card instead. Can you say Pumpkin Spice Latte?
And she also brought me these handmade pot holders. 
I don't know if you have any of these...but they are the best Pot holders EVER!!

Getting to spend a few precious moments with Lori this weekend before
she went before the throne of God! She was still making 
us laugh even in all her pain. I told her I loved her & to tell Jesus hi for me 
& she just looked at me & smiled. This will probably sound so 
weird to some of you...but I was a little bit envious she was going 
to see our Lord so soon. I wish I could walk her to the Gates of Heaven 
& get a Glimpse of Him...but I know I wouldn't want to come back. 
I am so curious about Heaven & how Glorious it will really be!
I can't wait to see Jesus face to face. What JOY that will be! 

To put it plainly...I am just feeling so loved & blessed this week thru
all of you. You are all a JOY!

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth
 comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. 
Romans 8: 18
Have a blessed week!!
