Happy Happy Joy Joy

Jessica, at Life on Brixton Lane, tagged me for 6 things that make me H-A-P-P-Y!!
So here ya go!

1. Today (6/8) is the 2nd anniversary of my really bad car accident. I was hit right on my driver's side door...rushed to the hospital...had l-o-t-s of glass taken out of my face and arms...and got all stitched up. The cuts have scars...many of which people that have met me in the last 2 years wouldn't think twice about...but I know they are there. But what I am HAPPY about is the power God has over every situation and fear. I should have been hurt a lot worse than I was in my accident...so says the paramedics that came to visit me at the hospital. So for that...I am thankful that God held me in my car that day. I am also HAPPY that Allikaye wasn't in the car!! Another HAPPY thing about this anniversary is how my fears have been given to God. I don't have to be nervous and anxious about getting in my car...going through a particular intersection...and being fearful of what could happen to me. I have learned to surrender this fear - that came upon me 2 years ago - and cast those fear on God. I love that - and it makes me HAPPY!!

2. I am HAPPY that MaTt GoT a JoB!!! Woohooo!! You heard right! We stepped out in complete faith...not knowing if Matt would get a job...but knowing that God would take care of us regardless. And after much prayer, patience and waiting...we were blessed with a job for Matt! Yay! So much thanks for all you prayer warriors that prayed for us! Now I get to be a stay at home mommy for a year - and Matt gets to continue to do what he loves and is good at...teaching! HAPPY!

3. I am HAPPY that people took the time to comment and give me some excellent advice on Allikaye's "pash" obsession. I got some g-r-e-a-t ideas...and we are excited to try a few of them! We are going to take this leap when we transition tot he "big girl" bed - which will be in a few weeks! I will keep ya posted!

4. I am HAPPY with being CONTENT!
Sounds like the Department of Redundancy Department! But it is true...I am striving to be content in my life...mainly in the area where we are at in our lives. I'm tryng to be thankful for where we are and not be in want of more.

5. I am HAPPY that I have the JOY of the Lord! I heard once that happiness is a temporary feeling - something that makes us feel good here on earth. But JOYfulness comes from a deeper place. It is having a hope and promise that is to come...knowing there is JOY ahead because of the promises of our Lord! That is why the word - JOY- is one of my fave words!

6. I asked Allikaye, "What makes Mommy HAPPY?" And Allikaye said, "ME!" She is SO right - Allikaye does make me HAPPY! She fills me with HAPPY HAPPY HAPPINESS!!

I knew God would provide for Matt...now we can put that on the praise list, which is always a HAPPY thing! Also, I thought it would make you happy that your BF is coming out to visit in about a month...it makes me happy (so you better be happy about it too) :)!!
