WFW: Shout with Joy!! Psalm 66:1-2


"Shout with joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious!"
Psalm 66:1-2
  
   I am so excited, happy, and filled with praise for God this morning! I got a call yesterday afternoon and ... I GOT THE JOB!!!! I am overwhelmed with joy! I was quilting with my pastor's wife (and a dear friend), Kathryn, when my phone rang. After I hung up I told her the good news and she screamed with joy! Then I called my husband and he was overcome! Then I talked to our pastor (Chap) and he shouted with joy too! I just giggled for about an hour straight! I am still giddy about it! My fabulous husband took me out for a romantic and fancy dinner at Cafe Michel (an unbelievably delicious french restaurant that we only go to on special occasions)! We got all dressed up and celebrated what God is doing in our lives! Please join me in praising God -- Jehovah Jireh (God my provider)! SHOUT WITH JOY TO GOD!!!

Lauren, it was nice to meet you through WFW today, and it was a pleasure to share in your joy. We went through our own seminary journey years ago and have been in full-time ministry for many years since. It has been an adventure and a gift! God will keep unfolding His provisions.

And those pictures of you two are just beautiful. You look absolutely lovely!
