Just one more pic to share from the Birthday Bash. I LOVE this pic of us! We are so blessed to live close and get to spend time together whenever we choose. I thank God for my beautiful Mom and my sweet sister…(yes, she’s beautiful too…and don’t we look so much alike?)
I found a picture frame for Joy for her birthday and it had this scripture on it…which I think is so appropriate….
“GOD HAS GIVEN US THESE TIMES OF JOY.” Psalm 81:4
To me it was a reminder that every thing in this life that brings us joy and happiness and contentment is a gift from the Father to us. Each time we smile, we should say, “Thank-you” to Him who is the giver of smiles. I admit that I sometimes take them for granted as if they are somehow ‘owed’ to me. But, they are not and I vow to remeber this and make my thanks known to God for his rich blessings.
