Loved your post on Joy!

Cathy said...

Mimi, I love to look up verses on joy. I'm glad they blessed you. :o)

Barbara said...

Thanks for the joy verses, Cathy. Yesterday morning, I went to church really not feeling too well. I usually don't show how I feel, but I was just give out yesterday. My SS teacher (pastor's wife)picked up on this and said, "You need to lean on the joy of the Lord for your strength." :)

Cathy said...

You are welcome, Barb. Don't be surprised it you hear that verse once more pretty soon. :o) I'm happy the Word ministered to you.

Beverly said...

What a wonderful idea to post verses on joy. How often we forget to rejoice in all things. I especially like Psalm 16:11 - "in Thy presence is fulness of joy..."

Cathy said...

Thanks, Bev. I saw around 155 verses on joy, I believe. They are wonderful. :o)

Maxine said...

Cathy, with the God we have and the Savior He sent to us, how can we not have joy? He even tells us to have it in the midst of trials. I'm sure that this post of yours is a sweet savor to Him.

Maxine said...

Oh, Cathy, I forgot to say: I saw your comment at Beka's about her poem. It's at my Scraps of Glory blog. I posted it last Friday.

Cathy said...

Amen, Maxine! Thank you for your very sweet comment. :o)

And I should have thought of your other blog. Thanks for reminding me. I'll have to look for her poem. :o)

Beka said...

Wonderful verses... brings me joy just to read them! Psalm 16:11 is one of my very favorite verses, and I've also been thinking a lot lately about Isaiah 61:3, which I believe you shared with me recently. What a blessing!

Cathy said...

Dear, Beka, I am glad the verses blessed you. :o)

Peggy said...

Blessings Cathy,

I guess you have plenty of posts on JOY (26) but I did find back here in 2007 the all inclusive list of verses. I'd say that with so much JOY that you should be JOYFUL & very ready to compose. I'm glad Bach encouraged your musical gift,
I'll wait for the composition of Spring JOY. All your lovely flowers & your music should draw you frequently in to His Joy!

May you be filled with inspiration and JOY! Thanks for your visit!

Cathy said...

Dear Peggy,
Thank you so much for looking up this post on Joy. And I truly appreciate your sweet comment and encouragement. That would be a great composition! Thanks for the idea, Peggy.

Deborah said...

Thanks for the link, Cathy! Many of the same verses I came across for 'joy' too. Now I just need to write my song for the year. :)
