"The world tells us annoyances and afflictions cause discouragement and doubt - and that we are right to demand our way. Then there are circumstances that aren't what we wish or even what we think we need and suddenly we're convinced life hurts. The only option we have is to protest or whine - or so it seems.
But what if we responded with worship instead? What if we moved beyond an occasional 'thank you', to cultivate a lifestyle of appreciating God's goodness every day of our lives - despite the circumstances?"
laughter - when I see my "pretties" re-arranged by grandchildren
(love the wig!)
And so much more......!!!!
friends, family, flowers....
I have a bottle of Joy dishwashing detergent by my sink.
When we built our house 6 years ago, the builder tried to encourage me to put in one of those soap dispensers, but I said "Nope!" I wanted my bottle of Joy. To remind me of 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Be joyful always;
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
