Grace and Joy Raining Down

It poured here yesterday all day long and I stayed inside most of the day. My heart was a bit cloudy in the morning too - I was grumpy with the kids and struggling to get moving on my kitchen piled with dirty dishes. But right in the middle of it all, the Lord rained down joy and grace upon my soul.

*I was blessed to read all of the "In other words" posts yesterday - such amazing women with testimonies of Christ in the middle of their tragedies.

*I was overwhelmed by the gift from Denise.

*I had the immense pleasure of sending that gift on to several deserving women. This brought me the GREATEST joy of the day - what fun to bless someone's socks off or bless her all the way down to her toes or to cause a writer to be "speechless!" I was all grins for the rest of the day. Giving truly is more blessed than receiving!

*My husband ALWAYS makes me smile!

*My Girls Night Out friends and I had a blast doing a service project last night - dressing up in lime green polyester suits and wigs as we organized for a rummage sale.

"Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:38
