Finding Joy with the help of pokes from my blogging sistas

We all have read and been told about trying to find joy in everyday things.
We know it can be done.
For me I sometimes need a little poke.
On Thursday there are two places where I get a poke.

Share the Joy Thursday.

Go here for a poke.

There are three simple things in this  photo that bring me joy.
A painting done in last year's painting class, simple daffodils and the cobalt blue bottles I like to collect.
Painting brings me such joy and it reminds me to be thankful for the ability to do this and for the amazing woman that is my 'painting' teacher.
She doesn't call herself an art teacher.
She is so humble and full of joy.

To me she not only teaches painting she lives her life with joy. 

Go to Paint Page and check out some of her other pupil's work.

Celebrate Friendship with Ruth

Having ....Aveda's tea/the

In a mug I got in Belize.....

Feeling .....snug and cozy in my home with my HH while a storm in brewing in the skies outside.

Thanking about.......we have rain, rain, rain here in our part of the country, more than enough and in Texas where our sun lives, there is one of the worst droughts they have ever had.

We must have empathy for all our fellow humans who are suffering under some burden.
Our prayers go up each day for folks all over the world to hang on to their faith and keep the hope.

This is a sad situation. The joy is in knowing that God is in control.
Go here for tea with Ruth.

For those with faith, no explanation is necessary. For those without, no explanation is possible. –Thomas Aquinas
