Joy in the Morning

My body is tired, but my soul and spirit are rejoicing.  


God keeps saying to me that this is my season of JOY,
yes, in all circumstances. 

What should have been a 6-hour trip, 
turned into an 11-hour trip home.

I kid you not!

Clean-up of hazardous waste from a tractor-trailer accident
on I-24.  It took me 2 hours to go 7 miles.
Still rejoicing?

YES! a long-awaited miracle.
(In this photo, Christy is holding our miracle for the first time.)

What's an 11-hour trip compared to a lifetime of dreams?

Oh the JOY of little ones!

I told someone the other day, 
if your heart is not big enough for them all, 
then your heart is too small.

Rejoicing in all!

Thank you Lord, that Joy comes in the morning. 
Today, I'm thankful for the morning. 

(Thanks Linda at Simply Linda for the siggy:)
