One hundred joys {un}

Though belatedly, I'm following in the footsteps of some creative souls and taking part in a celebration of good things known as 100 Joys (it all began here, at Sarah Markley's blog). I truly believe that every good and perfect gift is from above (see James 1:17). This blogventure gives me opportunity to step back and look at some of those gifts coming my way each day. The joys I share will be random and unordered and recent. All thanks to the King.

1) the kangaroos which dot the land around my sister's home (I especially like seeing tiny-awesome joeys poking out of pouches). 2) vaccuumed floors. 3) phone calls with my personal psychiatrist and mother, CMC.

4) alphabet noodles -- instant fun for $1.49. 5) watching movies with my sister. 6) the excellent chain of libraries in my region.

7) happy crazy times with faraway old friends and nearer new ones. 8) Mercy Me's Christmas album. 9) Okay, Hanson's Christmas album, too. 10) gmail chats with Meaghan. ♥

By the way, I'm sorry for the week of silence here in Blogville, DC. It turns out that the holidays can be just as busy as real life -- and sometimes even busier.

* * * * *


Katie -- Hooray for holidays indeed! I believe yours are right around the corner?

Elizabeth Fay -- as you are loved in all aspects by me.

Samantha R -- "it's the most wonderful time of the year"? :)

Rachael -- yes, a friend of mine showed me that clip -- hilarious!

Sarah Lee -- thank you so much for your sweet and encouraging words! Love and courage to you in all your endeavours, especially KBR.

Eweight -- oh YES it's a good feeling! (And when you read Dug Down Deep, let's chat about it!).

Asea -- it's like I can sense the snow in her stories :). How did your gingerbread shacks turn out?


  1. Can I tell you how happy I am that you're participating? =D
    I love how you included so many photos too!
    I'm chatting with Abigail right now ;) on gmail. Love it!
    Your alphabet soup cracks me up!

  2. Yay for counting joys and blessings!

    The gingerbread shanties (they got downgraded from shacks - we really should have re-cut the pieces when they came out of the oven!) were adorable, and so were the little girls. I took photos for you, but haven't had time to get them off my camera and put them somewhere for you to see yet. :-)

  3. Danielle!! It's us! You're awesome <3

  4. I love that first pic - baubles on Christmas trees are just right.

    My holidays are indeed coming up swiftly! A mere week and a half of work remains before I am free!

  5. I'M ON YOUR LIST!!! I love chatting to you, because we have constant subject changes - nonsense one minute, seriousness the next - without feeling weird!

    I've been listening to Mercy Me's Christmas CD too... until Carla pinched it so now I'm waiting to get it back :( I love the beginning of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" :)

    Love you! xx
