Day 28: God's Favorite


Four years ago today

there was a light show of thunder and lightning that my hubby and I

watched from our porch.

To us it was a celebration because

IVY LOU came into this world. BIRTH is LIFE CHANGING

because

BIRTH BIRTHS LIFE! BIRTH is MIRACULOUS as it is knitted by

GOD~ PURPOSELY BORN because GOD said so

for

"GOD LOVES EACH OF US AS IF THERE WERE ONLY ONE OF US"

(St. Augustine). Another precious little child sent to show us grown ups how to live. To have the FAITH like a child. To PLAY as if that is the only role on this earth. To PLAY is to embrace THE JOY OF THE LORD because there is no other JOY that is everlasting~ "YOU make known to me the path of life;

in YOUR presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore"

(Psalm 16:11). For when you experience HIS JOY you are empowered to do the impossible to face the impossible to LIVE the impossible because HIS JOY does the impossible~ "Do not sorrow, for the JOY of the LORD is your strength"

(Nehemiah 8:10). The STRENGTH OF JOY~ An inside outside explosion because of a relationship with GOD when you PUT JESUS IN YOUR STORY that creates a forever bond into eternity

that is yours in every moment,

so that being JOYFUL comes so natural that

you start to PLAY like a child in every moment, no matter what the moment is because we have SOMEONE to REJOICE about~ "Rejoice in the LORD always [delight, take pleasure in HIM]; again I will say, rejoice!"

(Philippians 4:4 AMP) So

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IVY LOU and thank you for living every every moment with such

JOY

that is beyond contagious that makes me reach inside and grasp THE JOY OF THE LORD so that I can LIVE in every moment with a child's heart filled with "JOY"!
