Five Minute Friday - Joy!

It's time for another Five Minute Friday.  I haven't done one in a few weeks so was excited to do this weeks.  For all the details and to join hop on over to The Gypsy Mama.
Today's prompt- Joy.


I love joy.  Joy is more than happiness and sometimes there is joy without happiness.  That seems hard to believe, but I know it to be true.  Only Christ can give us true joy. 

Things that bring joy into my life:
Being a wife to The Man
Being Mom to my kids
The expectation of another sweet little bundle that will grown into a wonderfully unique person all their own
A new day, a fresh start
A completed job
A place to call home
Being with family
Special friends that add to my life in so many ways
Seeing God work in the lives of our children
Salvation-knowing no matter how rough things get here, in the end it will be worth it all.


  1. Beautifully to find a blog with the same verse as mine :)

  2. I love your list of things that bring joy!

  3. This is a wonderful list, all of which bring me joy. Nothing, of course, like the expectation of new life. Congratulations!
