31 Days of Joy: Day 13 – Joy in Work

Well it appears my seasonal job will continue for another week.  I could get the call this morning that I am no longer needed, but I doubt it because God is blessing us with warm weather this week. Thank you God.

It is past time to get ready for work so I will leave you with a video of a song we sung in church yesterday. May you sing this song today and every day in every season of your life.

Blessed With Another Award

It’s award season again and not just in Hollywood but here on JoyReturns as well.  I am now a two-time Versatile Blogger Award winner thanks to Michael Erb of Me and the Boss.

Michael’s motivational blog is very down to earth.  It contains no fluff just simple, straight-forward, easy to understand quotes, poems and thoughts.

Thank you Michael for a wonderful blog and keep the motivation coming because the world needs you and your blog.

Now I need to list 15 blogs I’ve started following.  Well with the recent change in lifestyle here, I’ve only followed Michael’s and Raising 5 Kids With Disabilities, which I’ve already written about.  So I will have to catch up on the 15 at a later date.

Also I need to reveal 7 things about me.

  • My favorite perfume is Sensuous by Estee Lauder because it smells like a hug.
  • I belong to Positive Thinkers Network.
  • I work as a Virtual Associate for Jennasis and Associates doing blog consulting, editing articles for clients and writing blog articles for the Jennasis site.
  • I am passionate about chocolate covered cherries.
  • I am content living in Ohio despite having to live with the winter funk.
  • Finally, my new favorite Christian song is “10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman

Have a joy filled week.

Holiday Songs: 10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)

This song was also sung at last Wednesdays Thanksgiving Eve service.  It is a relatively new song we’ve used for services.  I was first introduced to this song at one of our weekly prayer meetings.

Enjoy and remember there are really 10,000 reasons and more.

“10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)”

[Chorus]

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

[Chorus x2]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
Lord, I’ll worship Your holy name

Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name
