I think today is a great day to start my new blog entry...probably on Sundays... called what else..but.."Cup of Joy"
I do start everyday out with a cup of tea (Earl)
unless i am soooo sweepy and then it must be super cinnamony..super creamy.. super sweet... maybe even a little /kaweweweshhhh/ whipped cream on top..oh, and some sprinkles too...but that's only if i am super sweepy... COFFEE!!!!! So I may switch my picture depending on how late i stayed up... but the main reason i am starting Sunday Cup of Joy..is to share some verses..some Joy verses...and maybe encourage you to hold me to it!! I am not a faithfull reader of my Bible...but God ALWAYS shows me His love in fun and creative ways... so everything that may seem like a coincidence..was very much an "on PURPOSE" from HIM!!! So..maybe we can learn something together..let me know if you do...my original thought was to work my way through the verses that had some "joy" in them... THERE ARE A LOT OF "JOY" VERSES!!!!!! I was hoping to find something having to do with Mother's day..for today's.. (just so you know.. they may not ALL have "joy" in them..i hope that's ok!!?)
Today's does for me.... "Be JOYFUL(L) always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
For my Mom... my Mommy!!!
You gave me my name..and so i will always be Joy..(Full)... it is actually a hard name to live faithfully by... but i am gratefull for it..I thank you for all that you are to me!! You are so much!! My cheerleader.. my friend..my brutally honest at times...my creative inspiration..my laughing so hard you can't even hear us..you are my most needed....most needed....did i mention...MOST needed!!!
And in the times when we have been distant the most.... it has seemed unbearable..because of what you are to me.. not ever for anything else... just because what I have in you is so special to my heart...i hope you really know that...Oh..and you are my minutes!!! You are also my example... and I am so delighted to be a "Mommy" myself now...I have a renewed appreciation for all you are to me as i see these little lives growing right before my eyes!! Thank you for being my MOMMY still...I love YOU!!
Happy Mother's Day!!
