Do you have joy in your life? There is a recipe that does not fail.

JESUS first. OTHERS second. YOU last. JOY……

Sometimes we are tempted to complain and feel sorry for ourselves. The past 5 days have been spent in the hospital as Tom waits to be healed of an infection in his leg. What a great opportunity to practice the recipe for joy. He has had 4 roommates in these 5 days. Every one has been witnessed to and prayed for. 

All the nurses have been given tracts. One of them, Roxanne prayed to recieve JESUS as her Savior. Another sweet nurse, Gladys, is so excited to take information to her pastor. All eight doctors have heard Tom’s amazing testimony and have been given a tract.

Instead of long sad countenance each person who comes into the room is greeted with a smile from both Tom and Carolyn. Spreading joy brings joy.

Acts 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
