Joy

Thankful thought of the day - Today I am thankful for Joy

There was a song we used to sing in VBS when I was a little girl. It went:

I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart.

How many times do we let life get in the way and steal our joy? We should always be filled with joy no matter what we are going through. We have so many things in our life that bring us joy and we shouldn't ever let anything take our joy away. What are some of the things that bring me joy?

My husbands smile and the way his eyes light up when I walk in the room.
The laughter of my grandchildren.
Listening to my grandchildren having conversations among themselves.
Talking with my children.
Holidays.
Saturday morning calls with Mom to catch up on our week.
Visiting with my family.
Having out of town guests.
Singing in the choir.
Working in Children's Church
Sermons.
Baking.
Shopping.
Sunday drives on beautiful spring days.
Setting in the sun at the beach.
Reading.
Bubble baths.
Pizza with a side order of M & M's.
A Milky Way
A tall glass of Pepsi loaded with ice.
A really good hot dog.
Planting flowers and watching them grow.
The smell of jasmine and gardenia.
Sunrises and sunsets.
My life.
