Welcome to Day 20 of 31 Extraordinary Days to Be… Or…simply: Be…
Together, we will learn to Be… to live fully and beautifully in our “skin”
and in our homes and beyond. If you missed The Introduction or you’d like
to follow the entire series, you can find each post listed here.
Last Sunday we took a drive with some friends to visit a local university’s gardens in the country. On our way home we drove past a small lake and were totally blown away by the awesome color.
Four excited adults exited the car and quietly shouted for joy, exclaiming the glories of the beautiful colors, and snapping photos.
It was the golden hour. The air was still. The water silent except for an occasional circle of ripples.
The whole earth was proclaiming the glory of God.
And we witnessed it.
You made me so happy, God
I saw your work and I shouted for joy.
Psalm 92:4 MSG
Day 20 Challenge: Have you “shouted for joy” at something God has done? Okay, maybe not out loud, but in your heart? This week, look for “shout for joy” moments. It might be something like the color in the garden, the woods, and the fields. It might be something the new baby or grand baby does. It could be an answer to prayer. Get out a notebook, or a piece of paper, and write down those moment. Next week…share them here for Joy Day!
It’s Joy Day!
It’s the day when we take time to count our blessings from the past week. To give thanks for the really good things and the things that weren’t so good.
I’m grateful for…
- God’s everlasting love
- a perfect fall afternoon to spend outside in God’s amazing creation
- a camera to capture those beautiful moments
- amazing friends
- a temporary (permanent ?) fix to the fuel line leak
- dogs who delight in going for a walk and playing ball
Now it’s YOUR turn!! Please join me by tapping in your ‘seven’ in the “Please Share Your Extraordinary Thoughts” section below. Something happens when we take time to list out our bits of gratitude. I guarantee your joy meter will rise.
