Joy to the World has always been my favorite Christmas song. 

Everything I do in my life, I try to find the joy in doing it. 

One of my favorite bible verses is about being content in whatever situation you find yourself. I think personally for me, that is the true key to joy. 

Then this morning there was one of those "let me analyze you" things on Facebook. This one was to let Facebook read your posts and determine what your life motto is and I thought it would be fine to see what Facebook thinks my motto should be. So I did it and this is what popped up....

It was definitely one of those God things. Then on top of that, I have something I am expecting that I needed pretty soon. I was told two days ago that it will take 7 - 10 days to get here and the lady said probably closer to 10 days. Well, last night after my prayers, I was drifting off to sleep and just said a quick little prayer. All I did was say, God if that could arrive tomorrow or Friday it would be great. I woke up to find an email that it is arriving today. Now tell me that He doesn't answer even the simplest prayer. It reminded me of Allen's favorite road sign he saw many years ago and we would use this quote all the time.

I love it when a plan comes together....especially when it is God's plan.

God's plan is the only plan...we have a favorite saying in our house, "Want to make God laugh? Tell HIM your plans!"

Many Blessings and much love Brenda to you....I know you miss your dear hubby....

I love that quote and perhaps your dear Allen played a part in getting that package to you sooner too. I sometimes see my mom whispering in our Lord's ear..... Joy To The World is one of my favorites! It says it all!

I just love your thoughts for today. Strange how God directs your fingers, and they go to a blog that has a very meaningful message, that I needed today. In fact, as this very moment.
