Joy in the morning

Another morning, another beginning of a week. May your day and week begin with joy even  in the simple acts of life. 
 This little guy does. 
 I strive to be more like my grandson in that aspect
to find joy in all that I do.
and to follow Christ's example of
caring for others and spreading love wherever I go.

It's time for the Monday prayer.  It's from a Stormie OMartian prayer book as usual. 
 I hope the beginning, middle, and end of this new week is wonderful for you all.

Make me ready to do Your will and move into the purpose for which I was created.
Send me out with joy to do Your work. Lead me with peace. 
 Help me to follow You in all things so I can accomplish Your perfect will. 
Help me to hear the celebration of Your creation
as I lift up praise and worship to You
over the great things You will do in me, through me, and around me.

You shall go out with joy, and be lead out with peace;
the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Isaiah 55:12


  1. That's a face I could see every morning! : ) Thanks for a sweet prayer to begin my week!

  2. That was a beautiful prayer. And, yes, we should all strive to find that simple and pure joy in everything we do.

  3. I love that verse. I love thinking of all the trees clapping their hands... but then you know my penchant for anthropomorphism : )

  4. aren't grandchildren just the best ...

  5. Hi Beth, That precious child is gorgeous.... YES---we could all learn from him and find the joy in everything in life.

    Have a great week...

  6. Sweet, sweet moments - and little boy!

    The prayer is so meaningful. We do need to be led out into our world with joy and peace, so that others will be attracted to Him.
