Count It All Joy Wednesday



I count it all joy that I am married to a man who is honest, faithful, and unwaivering, and that his Mom and Dad raised him in such a way that it is part of who he is ~ to the core.


I count it all joy that I was raised by solid Godly, loving parents who had expectations of me from the beginning.


I count it all joy that today I slept in 'til 9am cause my kids can finally wake up, turn on the TV, and not have to be eating breakfast at 6:30am anymore.


I count it all joy that I have 3 beautiful, healthy, smart, energetic kids who love me and who love their life.


I count it all joy that I was able to grow up in the same town as my Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins.


I count it all joy that I am able to stay at home with my kids.


I count it all joy that Selah loves the Lord, has given her life to him, and is already looking and working on ways to serve Him through the talents and interests she has.


I count it all joy that my kids love to learn.


I count it all joy that I have been blessed with the best friend in the world, and that after 12 years of friendship, we still talk on the phone for hours a day, and have never had even 1 fight.


I count it all joy that Alan and I are going out on a date Friday night!


I count it all joy that I am covered with God's grace thanks to Jesus and what he did on the cross for me.


I count it all joy that my husband loves me through and through, and when I'm down, he tries to pick me up. And he usually knows just what I need.


I count it all joy that I am blessed with a comfortable home that I can make my "nest" and have my place to be domestic ~ which is who I am.


I count it all joy that we are blessed with family friends and I have my core "people" with whom we are raising our kids and doin' life together.


I count it all joy that I get to be with my kids all day long and help guide their learning.


I count it all joy that my kids get to grow up in a church that has an amazing youth group, and even more that their uncle is their youth minister. That means so much to me.


I count it all joy that today is gonna be a great day!
