Share The Joy Thursday


Life takes many twists and turns along the way. You follow the path as it is laid out for you and try not to question HOW, WHO or WHY. There is sorrow, pain and disappointment along the way that you tend to carry with you. You need to examine these things and study them for a while to understand what you are supposed to learn from them. At some point though you must lay the sorrow, pain and disappointment aside. Hopefully the journey will be long and unless these experiences are set aside they become heavy and burdensome until they become overwhelming and are all that we see and feel.


While traveling on this same path there are experiences that would otherwise be the same, that needs to be laid aside after studying except for one reason. That reason being the people or person in your life at that time. An experience that could be unpleasant can instantly be turned into one that brings laughter and JOY! all because of the reaction to the action.

Such is the experience of falling down (not a good thing for someone that has two new knees) and being pulled out of the snow and ice by the love of your life. So many times since we have begun our journey together, my husband has helped turn what could have been my unpleasant experiences and heavy baggage into backpack memories that I can carry with me because they are light and JOYful. 


The JOY! that I share with you today is my husband, J.D. 

Why not join me at Meri's Musings 
to share in more JOY!


May your journey be blessed with JOY!

A loving and supportive spouse that challenges you to be your best and helps you celebrate every moment is a pure JOY! You are so blessed to have found a man who wants to walk beside you through life.

Hello Jo, thanks for stopping by my blog--welcome! I'll put the coffee on tomorrow morning...til then, will hot chocolate do? I liked your philosophy here in this post-- "At some point though you must lay the sorrow, pain, and disappointment aside..." I often think back to deep sorrows, and ask 'why'? I know I have to trust God for whatever I go through, and I do cling to the fact that He "has plans for me, to give me hope and a future". I do want to make the most of every day, and enjoy all the blessings that God has bestowed upon me--and there are so many! Take care, Jo! I will look around here a bit.
