Challenged by something I read yesterday to stop and create a current Joy List. Ready, set…go!
The kids belly laughing together. Finding a lamp I love at a garage sale for a steal. Overhearing Levi (2) sing, “The B-I-B-L-E.” Going to the doctor’s office with all 3 kids and they behave well. Jogging 3 miles. Being tackled in the living room by my husband. Having the kids come to my “rescue.” Precious, quite time with the Lord. The look on Jocelyn’s (5) face when she’s watching a princess movie. Creating a new play area for the kids in the basement. Stirring the whip cream into my ice peppermint mocha. Talks with my parents or sister on the phone. An e-mail or facebook message from a friend. Being asked to pray for someone. Seeing the Lord answer prayer. Luke (7) spontaneously writing me an “I love you Mom” note. A look from my gorgeous husband. Slipping on flip flops that have been warmed by the sun. A worship song that overwhelms me with His love. Picking vegtables from our own little garden. Pool time. Summertime.
How good and faithful is our God! I praise Him for all these blessings.

I can’t guarantee that the next object hurled by my head will be received with such an epiphany but I’m thankful for those moments of clarity and spontaneous praise to the Lord. He is so good – and so patient with me!
