The JOY Challenge: Day 21 and "Not Me! Monday!"...

Today, I am linking with MckMama at My Charming Kids for "Not Me! Monday!"


and Holley from in(courage) on her 40 day journey to choose joy. Won't you join us? If you would like to jump back to day 1 of my journey, click here. Or, to jump back to day 1 of her journey, click here.



Today, I am choosing joy in the beautiful view of God's creation that I have from our back patio.

Day...

or night...


I am always left thoroughly breathless by the beauty of what God has put right outside my back door.

What I don't usually expect to see and what I most certainly did NOT see this morning when I took Goldie outside was this lovely creature.

Nope! Not me! Then, I absolutely did NOT call D.T. outside to look at it. I did NOT tell him, "Hey, I've never seen a toad before. Only itty bitty little frogs. Green ones." I was NOT very excited, displaying my true lack of country skills.

So, how are you choosing joy today... and have you NOT seen anything interesting around your house?

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...


***Don't forget to pray for someone today!

Those are some pretty photos! We've been outdoors trying to find bugs for a science project; my son has to collect 20 and mount them on a posterboard. You can imagine what fun that has been!

Have a great week!
