Isn't it amazing how many things can come to mind just from hearing a simple word. For instance, when I seen the word joy I thought of:
Dish detergent
Joy joy joy joy down in my heart, yeah, down in my heart. (Sandy Patty- you ever heard that song?)
Joyful Living (Its a local nursing home)
And then I thought of all the things that give me joy in my life and all the joy I have in store for me this summer.

Like a beach vacation with my family and mom and dad. We will be at the beach on my 30th birthday! I am joyful that I have lived to see 30. (Although from now on I refused to have more birthdays. I will officially be 30 for the rest of my life ;) I have a mission trip coming up that I can not wait to go on! I can not imagine all the joy I will have when I see all those little faces when they receive their gifts! Yes joy is a wonderful thing. Grateful I have so many things in my life that bring me joy. Thank you Lord!
