Thankful for Joy

Rejoice in the Lord always!
Let me say it again (just in case you missed it the first time),
REJOICE!
Reasons for rejoicing today...
Sparkly diamonds decorating barren limbs in the warm glow of sunlight...
Singing children declaring the praises of our God...
God announcing His presence in my life with bursts of brightness...
Friends that surround with love and encouragement...
Ministry that fuels my passion for Jesus...
Redemption
Resurrection
Returning


Iris at Sting My Heart hosts Thankful Thursdays. Go visit her and be blessed by all the thankful hearts.

Yes, indeed we all have so many reasons to rejoice indeed. When I hear my kids singing praises to the Lord, it touches something so deep inside my heart.

Beautiful reminder!
