In my life and through experiences I always find that if you keep these three words in order JOY, Jesus, Others and You.Your life will be so much better. When the girl's were younger we kept a picture of Joy (Jesus others and you) in our classroom. This was also incorporated in their curriculum for school. I have always tried to teach them to always keep this order in their life.
The Bible speaks so much of Joy. Psalm 32 :11 ~~Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.~~ This scripture is just one of many. I know as a Christian it is easy to lose that Joy if we don't keep Jesus first in our hearts and life.What about you? Do you have this Joy?
My sweet and gracious friend Karen at Karen's Korner gave me three Blog awards. I posted them to my blogger side bar .Thanks Karen I appreciate your kindness and I enjoy reading your blog. Thank you for your friendship. Thanks to everyone who visits and may God Bless you ~

Good Morning Lisa,
You are most Welcome for those Awards. You are most deserving of them. You are such a sweet and gracious friend to me as well and I do enjoy our friendship and visits with each other. It is very true to keep JOY in our lives. "THANK YOU" for sharing such a beautiful post. I do love the quilt. Did you make it? It is a frigid morning here. It is 19 degrees as I'm typing this. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,

That quilt is so pretty. And, congrats on your awards.

No, today is not a very joyful day for me for some reason. But, after reading this, I am reminded how it should be (and will be after my time with the Lord).

Have a great day.
