Week 29 of Count it all Joy

John 17:13 And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures. ~ Thomas Aquinas

The Piano Guys share a lot of songs that make me smile. “It’s Gonna Be Okay” is a joyful noise:

SM post inspiration

The adversary will hiss, “All is lost. Hope is gone.” Remember that the adversary is the father of lies; truth is not in his nature. Truth is in God’s nature. There’s no place you can go that God doesn’t know where you are. Jesus sealed His promise of hope with His blood. Trust Him.

Around the World

Anne Leueen, over at HorseAddict, participated in a photo challenge:

She reminisced about attending the Olympics in London. Now, it’s in Japan.

She shared pictures of people who live on barges in London, and shared a picture of people who live on water in Cambodia.

She also shared a picture of a piece of Chihuly glass art, in London, on the water.

Here it is at our local botanical garden, in Arizona, in the desert, years ago:

Week 28 of Count it all Joy

Romans 14:17-19 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of me. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

Joy is not necessarily the absence of suffering, it is the presence of God. ~ Sam Storms

Donny Osmond was one of my first fangirl crushes. I still love his voice. Hearing him always brings me joy. This is his newest single, yep, really: Who

Reading List 66-70

66. Nothing But Cowboy (The Raffertys of Last Stand series Book 1) by Justine Davis contemporary romance. Love her protagonists, intelligent, reasonable, flawed, honorable. (All her books have at least one bedroom scene.) I also love most of the secondary characters. I like that her antagonists are clearly unlikeable. I’m always able to identify with at least one of the protagonists, though not the successful part. I wish I were more courageous in tackling the world. I see ways I could improve and feel inspired to try.

67. Angel for Hire by Justine Davis contemporary paranormal romance. I’ve been waiting to re-read this, and I needed a distraction. I still love this story.

68. Sanctuary (Murrells Inlet Miracles Book 1) by Laurie Larsen inspirational romance.

69. Roadtrip to Redemption (Pawleys Island Paradise Book 1) by Laurie Larsen inspirational romance.

70. Remembering the Cowboy (Blackwater Ranch series Book 1) by Mandi Blake inspirational romance.
