Choose Joy!


Hello, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend with your family.
Lately, the weather has been very rainy and gray, and it can just make you feel down sometimes. Combine that with an already busy and stressful day and a million things on your mind that you have to do, well, it's hard to be joyful at times like that. Before you know it, you are walking around with a gloomy face and your family is wondering what's wrong with you! In times like that,we need to be reminded that God is still good, and that our joy is not dependent on the circumstances around us. 1 Thessalonians 5 :16 says to "Rejoice always", not just when things are going great.
In case you're having a day like that, here's a few reminders about joy. And even if you're not having a bad day, enjoy them anyway!  (Hey, I made a pun! :P)


































Have a joy-filled day!
