I don't know about you, but I need a lift! This thread is about finding and naming the joy that we see in our day. Let's list at least 5 things about our day that we find joyful. This is actually something of a psychological method in order to bring our thoughts into a more positive perspective!

1. Gorgeous, clear blue September skies

2. Took the day off   Tongue

3. Played with my dog outside

4. packing for a family visit

5. God is good to me  Heart

I hope that I can read your comments and share in your joy!

 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.  Jeremiah 31:3

1) Got some cross-training at work today; will be doing a different position Thursday and Friday (the more I learn; the more indespensible I make myself)

2) For the first time in months; I am not stressed about rent and bills!

3) Actually have an evening to myself. This is so rare!

4) God is good

5) is my favorite number

There's only one true judge and that's God; so chill and let Our Father do His job

5 seems like a lot, anyways let's try...

1. First day at work after after long vacation but feeling great all the same.

2. Finally healthy, at peak mentally and physically.

3. Love nostalgia which autumn always brings to me

4. Winning my spiritual battles these days more often than not..

5. Attention overload today and I'm vain enough to enjoy it

I'd like to give this a whirl.  

1) I am again working for a company that I appreciate and I know appreciates me. (The pay and benes don't hurt either Tongue)

2) I have the love of my life as my husband and the most beautiful daughter in the world.

3) I have been given breath this morning to again have the opportunity to live out God's will.

4) My daughter is now in school and she loves it.  I was worried about that but, it appears, she is just fine without me all day  Undecided lol

5)  I am grateful that God continues to allow my eyes to see and my ears to hear.  If that makes sense, which I'm sure to some of you, that will


It is very interesting the order that I thought of these top five.  I was tempted to change the order, but I think, in the name of honesty, I won't.  It's telling to where I am spiritually.

Heart Heart Heart Heart Heart Heart  to all of you.  

That's for you, DR  Wink

Very nice, Ambuler! I forgot to thank God for today when I got up this morning. Your thankfulness for today's breath reminded me.

“O people, spread peace (extend greetings), feed the hungry, and pray at night when people are sleeping and you will enter Paradise in peace.”
