Found In An Old Journal

I have given my girls some of my old journals and I do love it when they ask me to read to them what I wrote ... So sitting out on the front porch this morning RESTING IN HIS PRESENCE like my Jesus Calling book was encouraging me to do my sweet Emily brings me my journal from 2008, and it said "JOY is based on who GOD is and HAPPINESS is based on circumstances." ... This is not a new concept, but one always worth re-visiting on a daily basis ... The words JOY and HAPPINESS have been such a part of my vocabulary lately as I speak to families about the road of adoption or joining the fight to help orphans ... I am not on this earth to obtain happiness, but to bring JOY to the FATHER ... Bring JOY to the father brings more and more JOY in my life and in my FAMILY'S life ...

Blessings on this Sunday Morning ... I hope you find some rest and peace !!!

thanks baby girl for a sweet reminder this morning !!! praying you always seek to find the LORD's joy in your life !!!  love mom

Thanks for the good word this morning.

We are living in the midst of very difficult circumstances. Our family is not very "happy" right now. But, I need to be reminded that I MUST walk in the JOY that I KNOW the LORD has for me.

I hope your Sunday is BLESSED!
