I am joyful today. Why you may ask...? Well I am joyful for the simple things. I am joyful that I feel relatively well.
I am joyful that I want to provide for my family's domestic needs.
I am joyful that I know God.
I am joyful that I have the ability to share God and His word with others.
I am joyful for friends, and family.
I am joyful for my life...
I spent this day doing laundry, feeding kids, pushing reese in her swing, making baby food, preparing Jason a weeks worth of prepackaged ready-to-go breakfasts, preparing food items for a weeks worth of cooking, folding and putting up clothes and I am so very thankful and JOYFUL for those things.
Praise God that I can be so very happy in so very simple things!
Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully
1 Thessalonians 5:16
Be joyful always
