Share the Joy Thursday

Share the Joy Thursday
I received this on Sunday via e-mail from a friend.
It filled my heart with Joy.

The joy of knowing the gift of faith is one of my prized blessing from God.

Having.......a cup of hot chocolate in my fun Doc Martin mug.

Feeling..........good about the fact that HH and I have done some gardening and will have our own tomatoes for this summer season.

Thinking..........Have been reflecting on the words of Jesus from this past Sunday's gospel John 20, 19-31.
Jesus came to the apostles and showed them his hands and feet and the wound in His side.
Thomas, when he was told about what they had seen said,
"I'll never believe it without probing the nail-prints in His hands, without putting my finger in the nail-marks and my hand into His side."
 A week later Jesus came to them again and Thomas was there.
He did feel the nail-holes and the wound in His side and said that he believed.
Jesus said ,
"You became a believer because you saw me, Blest are they who have not seen and have believed."

What comfort that gives me.

I do believe and I have not seen.

Go here to enjoy other shared stories. 

Go here to visit with Ruth and friends.
