{Joy Day 17} Rejoice in the Lord

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord.  To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.

Philippians 3:1, emphasis added

It’s Monday … I have a love/hate relationship with Monday.  I love the fresh start Mondays bring but I hate the looming “to do” list that Mondays also brings.  So, today, I choose to rejoice in the Lord … to keep my list of all the blessings and gifts of this day.   This post will be updated all day long.

Many join in the counting of neverending gifts both at Ann Voskamp’s lovely blog and on Facebook … you might want to join there as well.

Regardless, today, rejoice in the Lord!  In His mercy, in His grace, in His love, in His provision … in Him, for He is enough.
