Worship Wednesday: JOY in the Morning!

When I woke this morning, I really, really, really wished it was Friday. It seems as if I have had a week! And it's just Wednesday. So waking to it being Wednesday, wasn't very joyful. In keeping with my "choosing to have joy" I began to think of the blessings in my life. I won't list them all... seriously I wouldn't have time this morning..... But thinking of those things did change my attitude a  bit!

On my way into work, the sun was shining brightly and the sky was amazing!!! Then this song came on....I said, "thank you Lord!! What JOY for my morning!!"  (I know I have shared it before) I turned up the volume and danced, sang and praised the Lord as I drove down the interstate. 

Those behind me and driving by me were probably thinking I had lost my mind..... but that's fine. I am a  "peculiar" person! You were dancin' too, weren't ya?? 

Heavenly Father, 
Thank you for this day! Thank you for the many blessings in my life. So many times I take for granted the fact you allow me to wake up, get out of bed, wake my sleepy head children, see my wonderful husband off to work, see my in laws when I drop Kea off (they are a HUGE blessing in our lives!) take Bub to school (which will only happen for a few more months :( he is turning 16!!!!) and then head to work. I know I complain about my job, but I am thankful that I have one, considering some people do not. Lord, I know I fail to thank you for so many things in my life.... Thank you for reminding me how blessed I am this morning!!!  

Linking up with these sweet ladies !!

Lovely how Christ can bring joy into our mornings if we let Him. I have had that happen too. Just pray for Him to fill us up and He does.
I have started a Wednesday's Word on my blog - this would fit perfectly. You are most welcome to join if you wish.

Linking up right before you on Wednesday's Word linkup - yes, being joyful is often our choice, isn't it?! Choosing to focus on having a thankful heart, and lifting ourselves out of focus on self. Thanks for sharing your morning! (And always fun to come across another "gramma" online!)

It is good to have joy in the morning especially on those mornings when it doesn't come so easy. Thanks for linking up over at WholeHearted Home this week.
