Joy and wierdness!

I know I already blogged once today but I'm gonna do it again.

Something wierd happened last night, I mean really wierd.

My friend asked me if I was joyful, I thought he meant was I happy, which I wasn't as I had massive waves of pain knocking me over at the moment, so I said no.

Turns out he meant the biblical meaning, joyful in the Lord, in my circumstances, which I am. I am thankful God has given me so much, great friends, faith (even if it occasionally waivers the foundation is built on a rock solid basis), and is teaching me great lessons thru my illnesses. I am joyful in what God has done for me. and grateful. and totally undeserving of His grace upon grace that He pours on my head.

Then I went to read one of my favorite disability blogs, called Chewing the Fat, by David Hingsburger and he was also talking about Joy. 

ok God, I'm listening! I will be more outwardly  and inwardly joyful!

Thank you!

Soli Deo Gloria
