52 weeks of Joy, Weeks 7 and 8

Keeping track of my Joys was something I thought I would be able to easily blog about.  But it really is just one more thing on my to do list.  But I vow to continue and not get lazy with it.  This is more for me than it is for you.  It's a way for me to sit down, ponder and thank the Lord for His gifts and mercies.  I could easily sit down and complain about it all but I'm reminded to count it joy.  Last week was a reminder of that.   I was reminded that the world's pain can always be used for God's glory, if I allow it. 

40. Memories (even the painful ones.  the Lord can be glorified.  One day they won't hurt as much.)

41. A confidant.  I'm so blessed with the people the Lord has placed in my life.  Even the ones He has taken out.

42. Date with my boys.

43. A very generous and loving friend.

44. A sick day at home.

45. The blessings of new babies (not here ;-P )

46. Little boys that one day will turn into men.

One day these little feet will go their own way.  I pray we will have lit the right path. 
 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.-Psalm 119:105

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.”

- James 1:2-3
