Why I Count It All Joy Wednesday
I'm joining Angel today as she encourages us to share the joy in our hearts.
I enjoyed a rich devotion time this morning in Ephesians 4. Jesus ascended on high and led captives in His train and gave gifts to men, Eph 4:8. It fills me with joy to be called and I'm humbled to be used for God's kingdom.
I praise God for His safety this week. When I pulled up to my home after work last Monday, a bull was grazing in my yard. My husband was already home cooking dinner and I called him on my cell to walk me in, but as soon as I opened my car door, the bull walked away. Honest, there really was a bull by our shed starring at me!!!
It was a joyful celebration last Sunday when I was reunited with my family on Father's Day. Carrie drove me to Yuma, AZ, where we met my husband and my older daughter for lunch at a favorite Mexican restaurant. I am thankful to have been in San Diego and offer my help. It feels great to be home with my hubby and even good to return to work!
I'm joyful because I went through a hard year of testing. God always has wonderful surprises in all the pain. My blogging friends are wonderful. You will never know the encouragement you bring in your uplifting comments and emails and prayers. So much good has come out of your prayers for my family. My daughter, Carrie, has developed a new blog talking about her journey and looking forward to encouraging others as she has been encouraged. I would love it if you would visit her at Pain to Purpose.
Let's count it all joy this Wednesday!
