Moments of Pure Joy...in the Past 7 Days.

Do you ever have moments of pure joy where God shows you how big & very real He is?

Last Saturday, I enjoyed the St. Ann's Fair w/ a friend & his son. God showed me every possible combination of joy, love & peace in a few short hours. Believe me when I say I took in every sight, sound & smell possible. I was completely engrossed in a world full of whistles, music, children's voices, books, cotton candy, bright colors, & laughter.

A few days later, I spent a most wonderful evening with my precious friend Molly. As always, our time was filled with talk of God's change in our lives & His amazing goodness as He forms us in this world. As an über-bonus, we talked of art, creation & our use of it to glorify His profound wonders.
Let me share some of our night...

Art mags, yummy joe & wedding planning.

My Week of Joy went a little like this:
- Wed. night, Molly introduced me to a new sister--
The Passionate, Vibrant Amazing Carra!

- The next night, The P.V.A. Carra & I shared a lesson over Acts 4 at 18-24 CBS along with Bonnie the Fabulous, Kim the Amazing & Angie the Inspiring.

- Friday, I was humbled to be able to make lunch for my darling Cymbre. Parts of my heart cry she & Mike (Big Jerkface Bob) are leaving to begin a new life in South Texas, but I am thrilled to have yet another place to visit! They bring me joy every day! Their dedication to Our Papa God has been so inspiring & healing for me!
- Saturday, I spent an exhilarating breakfast w/ Carra talking of
...which lead to lunch....which broke at 2 o'clock only by a previously scheduled event.

I am humbled by undeserved moments of joy...

and my God who lovingly, willingly & joyously brings them to me.

Now it's YOUR turn to share with me:

What brings you surprising joy?

Right now it is moments with friends and family...whether they are planned or unplanned, filled with bean burritos and raman noodles or fancy snacks at a party, I'm soaking in every minute I have with those I love and that brings me pure joy!!
