Thankful Thursday

joy of the lord Pictures, Images and Photos
One of the things God has taught me in the past 20 years is joy. My “life verse” in these past several decades has been, “the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

There are so many things to be thankful for and I think I’ll just jot down some of the things that come to my mind.

  • my wonderful husband who is so loving, tender and kind
  • my children who are just plain NICE kids!
  • my loving and caring church family
  • my dear dear friends from CHFWeb
  • the gals I mentor who are so sweet and giving
  • my sisters on staff with Crazy8 Ministries and the passion of their service for the Lord
  • the lovely weather
  • new friends I’ve met in the writing of this blog
  • kindred spirit friends from my past – though I seldom see or talk to them, my heart is linked to theirs in love
  • and finally, the love and care of my heavenly Father

May each of you spend time today focusing on the JOY God affords you!
