I had to stop at my church yesterday to take care of some R.O.X. stuff. While I was in the library, this book caught my eye.
I started reading it this morning and liked what was written in the introduction:
"If you were to define joy, how would you do it?
Scripture gives us clues. For starters, Nehemiah 8:10 tells us the joy of the Lord is our strength. First Chronicles 16:27 tells us that strength and joy are in God's dwelling place. John 16:24 tells us to ask and we'll receive so that our joy will be full. John 16:20 promises that our grief will turn to joy.
No matter what definition of joy we use-- abundance, happiness, fulfillment, whatever-- our relationship with God is integral to true joy in our lives."
Not up to very much today. Cameron's taking the van (his truck broke down at the farm and he need to go and work on it) so Jonah, Sage and I are chillin' at home. (Cameron suggested I walk to get Austin at lunch and then walk him back afterward, but I sent a lunch along with him, because otherwise we would really be chillin', because it's freezing outside!)
