music notes

I think back to last year, during a stressful time at my previous job.  I was sitting at my desk, in my 5′ x 6′ cubicle, crying out to God from within for help.  All of a sudden, it was like a jolt to my soul, a song bubbled up and I began to sing.  That’s right I sang to my coworkers.  I wrote down the words so that I wouldn’t forget them.

(first line) The joy in my heart has nothing to do with this place,

the joy that I have is all because of God’s amazing grace.

(chorus) Joy, Joy, oh what Joy, Joy in my soul,

Joy, Joy there’s so much Joy, my hear overflows.

(second line)The joy in my heart has nothing to do with things I have,

The joy that I feel is all because I’m a child of the Great I Am.

(repeat chorus)

I don’t think I will ever forget that moment in time.  It was a great witness to me that though the job stressed me to the max, I had God on my side.

I’m free of that job now, actually I’m between jobs at this time.  But I still have the joy that only comes from my faith.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
