There is Joy

There is joy to be found….

  • in tackling things, one by one.
  • in unexpectedly balmy breezes, late in October.
  • in the morning’s learning going smoothly and quickly.
  • in an impromptu game of ball.
  • in friendship.
  • in being able to help.
  • in the chattering song of playful squirrels.
  • in the familiar smell of decaying leaves.
  • in Bible verses that comfort the heart.
  • in knowing the Lord.
  • in refusing to give in to fear.
  • in singing praise with my sweet girls.
  • in the voice of a sweetie-girl, belting out one of her favorite songs.

Ah, yes, there is joy.

Yes, that is our little Luna Blue. Usually I gripe about the poor video quality of this cheapy camera, but I liked the sunlight effect in this one, too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I was able to browse around yours for a bit and you have a really nice site. I love your enthusiasm for Compassion Int'l. We have sponsored a child for many years and you gave me some really great ideas on how to share more and do more with our ministry to her. Your daughter is just lovely as she sings this beautiful song. Blessings to you.

Thank you for those thoughts. I get so busy, and there is so much joy around us to be thankful for, but I don't take the time to think of them and give thanks to the giver of our joy.
