I’ve Got The Joy…

When I was a little girl, I remember singing that song, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart.”  It was such a cheerful tune and lighted up my soul as I sang along with all my friends and we clapped our hands in the happiness of the moment.  Can you recall a time like that in your life, when your face hurt because you were smiling  so hard, but you just couldn’t stop?  Or has time erased some of what was once so easy to bring to mind?  It isn’t hard these days to lose sight of our inner child, the one who craves the simple sound of a song.  So here, I hope you’ll find a pocket full of joy to fill your day with just enough of that tune to see you through whatever is your need.  Stop for a moment.  Breathe deeply.  And soon, you may be singing of joy as well.

Our Christmas decorations from this year (the camper, the salt and pepper shaker truck and trailer, and the Santa tractor snow globe) along with the snowman, Santa and sleds ornaments handmade by hubby, and from years past. This will be looking different next year because we’re moving!

We found a place locally that we’re turning into our forever home! I’m beyond excited! Will show you around when we get done.

Scripture Sunday, December 8, 2019

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1:18-21

A dear friend, Vanessa Tucker, and me, after singing a duet of Angels We Have Heard On High in church four years ago. I love singing harmony with this lady! If you’d like to hear O Holy Night, I have it posted on my Facebook page.

Scripture Sunday, December 1, 2019

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

And the angel came in into her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Luke 1:26-28

My Misfits box came today! It usually comes on Thursdays, but being that tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I got it a day early! And it was even better than the last one!

Now I have to decide what I’ll do with it all. I know I’ll be making a Mediterranean salad for dinner. I have artichoke hearts, calamata olives, Violife vegan feta cheese, chickpeas, roasted red peppers, fresh tomatoes (it’s Florida!) and mixed baby greens. I think it will be delicious!
