I Give You Joy!

"Thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity.  That is why I have instructed you to give thanks for everything.  There is an element of mystery in this transaction: You give Me thanks (regardless of your feelings), and I give you Joy (regardless of your circumstances)."
~ Sarah Young
Jesus Calling



  1. I just listened to an interesting sermon yesterday on gratitude yesterday, Sandy. Basically, the person that shows it,receives something extra. And that's true isn't it? I know I feel lighter and happier when I tell someone "thank you". Imagine how we feel when we tell God that!

  2. There is so much to give thanks for – if we just remember to do so!

    I’m very thankful for the wonderful box of goodies that arrived on my doorstep yesterday, Jane! I had such fun opening and enjoying each pretty wrapped gift. Life’s treasures are a lot like those in that brown-paper-wrapped box; each very unique and special - and meant to be both individually and collectively celebrated.

    Thank You for a real day brightener!!

  3. I like that! "You give me thanks and I give you joy?
