Thoughtful Tuesdays – How we can make joy bubble over

Thoughtful Tuesdays – How we can make joy bubble over

bubbles-joy-web

My thoughts during the bout of flu were “how can I make this joyful”? During that time I tried to pray but really felt so bad I couldn’t do it. But I did read my Scriptures, and some blog posts. I did sing praise songs while soaking in the tub. I found I could accept what was happening if I just rested in God and thanked Him for little things.

It reminded me of the years that I would count the gifts. Ann Voskamp has a wonderful site where she encourages us to count the gifts, daily. I did that and now have many posts to show those weeks. Check out Counting Gifts.

And Margaret Feinberg has written a book and Bible study to show us how to Fight Back with Joy.

So my little picture came to me as I thought of joy. Joy that bubbles over. If we can have that joy – then others will see it. And they will be led to wanting to know more about Jesus.

I am creating something new in you: a bubbling spring of Joy that spills over into other’s lives. Do not mistake this Joy for you own or try to take credit for it in any way. Instead, watch in delight as My Spirit flows through you to bless others (Sarah Young, Jesus Calling, June 13).

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, JOY, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness (Galatians 5:22, NIV, my emphasis).

 

I learned a song while in Poland. The English words are:

Jesus’ love is bubbling over.
Jesus’ love is bubbling over.
Jesus’ love is bubbling over.
Hallelujah!

Have a great week.

Blessings,

Janis

Watchful Wednesdays – How Can I Learn Scripture?

Watchful Wednesdays – How Can I Learn Scripture?

bible

I found this blog today more than stimulating. Ann Voskamp really hits the truth in her post at InCourage. All quotes are from her post.

What if Jesus’ Word was more than useful to us? What if it was beautiful to us?

What if God’s Word was more than a manual in our lives — what if it was the masterpiece in our lives — that made our lives a masterpiece?

Ann questions whether we see Jesus as “useful” or do we adore Him. If we are using Him to make our lives better we are missing the whole point. We need to love Jesus – and get to know Him better through His Word – so we can be strong in Him.

This is a wonderful way to learn Scripture.

Christ’s weapon against Satan in the desert was memorized Scripture. And if you aren’t memorizing Scripture — what IS your weapon in your battle? Where is your defence, your arrow, your hope? We have got to do this thing. It. is. our. life.

This is the year we pick up a sword, that we carry our arrows, that we take aim —-

This is the year that we would fly.

Five Minute Friday – Encouragement

Five Minute Friday – Encouragement

encouragement

 

Life is full. I haven’t done a Five-Minute Friday very often. But I really want to get back into doing this.

It only takes 5 minutes (except for the posting, filling in tags, categories, and finding a picture) so here goes.

I am joining Lisa Jo Baker and her Five-Minute Fridays. Calling all writers – join me.

Today’s word is Encouragement.

My post today on Under the Cover of Prayer is called “Do I matter to God?”. Janet Sketchley wrote a comment which is in itself is always an encouragement.

Today she wrote:

We need that unshakable assurance that we all, as individuals and as a group, matter to God.

That’s one of the reasons I write – to provide that encouragement to others. That’s how we grow in our faith – little by little.

God writes about encouragement all through His Word. His promises are many.

God says:

 I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you (Joshua 1:5, The Message). (click to tweet)

This week I have downloaded a “daily plan” from Ann Voskamp. One of the sections says: relationship. Here is the plan from her wonderful post called A Grace Plan.

In the spot called RELATIONSHIP, I put which relationship I want to grow today. Someone I will reach out to.

And then there is the Holy Spirit nudge of encouragement. I see a woman once in a while on the bench as I drive back home in my golf cart after tap dance. I smile. But today I said, What a beautiful day! And I love your smile.” She smiled back even bigger. Small thing but big results.

What are you going to do today to encourage someone? (click to tweet)

Five minutes are up (with a break to help my hubby lay flooring). Your turn to read other posts or write your own.

To find other Five Minute Friday posts – click on Five Minute Fridays.

Don’t forget to write comments – they are an encouragement. Check out number 3 in Lisa Jo’s rules. She knows that’s one things that keeps us writing. ENCOURAGEMENT

Five-Minute Fridays

Five-Minute Fridays

Want to join Lisa Jo. Here are the rules:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

As I continue to count the gifts I feel like I have been on a scavenger hunt seeking new things. Thanks so much to Ann Voskamp for leading this journey.

Last week I attended a full week art course at Haliburton School of the Arts. It was called Experimental Watercolour by Kal Honey.

Kal pushed us; he pulled us; he told us to stop thinking and just paint; he told us to forget about the product and just work with the process.

My head is full. I want to paint but my computer calls. On Monday I did take time to play, and explore my paints. Fun.

Here is my list from this week:

July 24 ~ 3 gifts sand

      • I recall a cute statement from my granddaughter while walking around our roads in early summer. “These roads look like the beach, grandma.” Our roads were still covered with winter sand.
      • sandpainting: Something that I must try for Creative Saturdays
      • I love building castles, moats, digging holes and just the feel of wet sand through my fingers and toes

July 25 ~ 3 gifts endings

      • on this day I am at the 1/2 way point of my art class – hard work, but I don’t like endings

Week 30 Janis'-paintings - Haliburton School of the ARts - Kal Honey

      • when is a piece of art work finished – we talked about “endings” in our art class

Week-30-Janis'-painting-Kal-Honey-course

      • Jesus knew when His time was ending on earth. And He knew it was accomplished when He said, “It is finished”.

July 26 ~ 3 gifts fresh

      • today is a new start – a promise of diversity in my art, in my life – less computer time and more living
      • fresh look at myself – I needed this week taking my art course to know that somehow I could take 40 hours from my regular week and still get my posts up, cook dinners, and even go for a boat ride
      • Jesus renews me every morning so I can start each day fresh

July 27 ~ a gift on vacation, at home, in relaxation

      • vacation: I am looking forward to our trip to Poland in the fall
Week-30-Poland Trip 2010 - Janis Cox

Poland Trip 2010 with International Messengers

      • at home: I am putting my art supplies into a meaningful order
      • relaxation: taking a few days to reflect after a very full intensive week

July 28 ~ 3 gifts beginnings

      • a new painting outlook – fun!

Week-30-Janis-Cox-Art-Experimental

Week-30-Art-Course-Janis-Cox-bird-Watercolour-Experimental

      • reorganizing my writing plan
      • on a steering committee for a new outreach for Haliburton

July 29 ~ 3 gifts together

      • we have great fun together at my daughter’s and son-in-law’s trailer
      • I love how our family works and plays together
      • my hubby and I have been together for 42 years (married) but have known each other for 45 years

This week I am taking an art course at the Haliburton School of the Arts. It is called Experimental Watercolour by Kal Honey. If you are from Ontario and love art, consider checking out the summer brochure – lots of great classes.

So my pictures are few this week – if any – but I keep counting the gifts. I would love you to continue to link your posts.

July 17 ~ 3 gifts learned

  • I learned all about furnaces and air conditioning this past week as my daughter’s A/C decided it was too old to work (and this during a heat wave)
  • I learned how to keep cool; move around slowly; drink lots of fluids, have a shower and go to bed with wet hair
  • I learned there is a new Bible study starting in August – online, studying one passage of Scripture a week (hope I can find it again)

July 18 ~ 3 gifts musical

  • baby toys can come on suddenly when you least expect it
  • I love watching my grandbaby dance to the music
  • I love singing songs – praise and worship songs especially

July 19 ~ 3 gifts baked

  • it is a blessing our bread is already baked – either regular or gluten free
  • Grateful that we now have baked chips, not fried ones
  • I baked in the heat – over 90 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees C.) and it was humid

July 20 ~ a gifts light, dark and shadow

  • light: I love the morning light waking me up
  • dark: it is so quiet in the dark
  • shadow: isn’t it wonderful how the trees provide such lovely shade, especially in the heat, while we played in the sandbox?

July 21 ~ 3 gifts story

  • Sunday’s sermon was on Mary and Martha – a story I know well as I have a children’s book, unfinished, based on this story
  • the stories in the Bible – so powerful
  • twice a month we have a storytelling course on Mondays – we are learning biblical storytelling – Highlands Biblical Storytellers.

July 22 ~ 3 gifts understated

  • we learned in art class today the difference in intensities – and it is good to vary the intensity of the colour – some to be understated or lower intensity
  • me – I have to learn not to be so intense – t0 let go of control – be understated
  • the lesson this morning from Oswald Chambers – It is NOT about me. I have to keep reminding myself

July 23 ~ a gift high, low and far away

  • high: I drank a chai tea this morning and actually had a high level of energy for most of the day
  • low: unfortunately now that it is nighttime – my energy level has hit bottom – low
  • far away: this week I am reminded of the Polish mission team, with which I have travelled 4 previous times, is so far away. Praying for them especially since they have lost half the team (before they arrived). Trusting God to figure this out.

Here are a few shots of the weird and wonderful things we have been doing this week.

experimental-tools---strainer

An artist works with the strainer to see the types of marks that she can make on the paper. No brushes were allowed.

experimental-tools---bubble-maker

Bought for $1.00 at the Dollar Store – this artist uses it to create interesting textures.

experimental-tools

This is my effort. I used the little squiggly thing at the top. Made from flower wire, it has a feathery end. Amazing how many different marks can be made from it.

experimental---handmade-tool---Kal-Honey

One of the students had made this gadget – string, washers. Our instructor, Kal Honey, is shown using it.

What Do You Say? – Thank you.

What Do You Say? – Thank you.

by Janis Cox

Thanks

Janis Cox – www.janiscox.com

Last weekend we held a community garage sale. My granddaughter who is 6 was visiting us. She wanted to sell lemonade and her copies of her “books”.

We set up the lemonade stand and book table beside Grandma’s. She had a wonderful time, sold some books and lots of lemonade.

Every time as someone said, “That was wonderful lemonade” or “Oh that lemonade was delicious”, I waited for her to say those special words.

But I had to say these words to her: “What do you say?”

“Thank you”, she replied.

Are we like that? Do we have blessings overflowing but do we need someone to remind us:

“What do you say?”

Practice praising and thanking Me [Jesus] continuously through the day (Jesus Calling).  (Click to Tweet this)

We all need reminders. The Bible is full of them.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name (Psalm 100:4, NIV).

Here are some suggestions to help us remember to say our thanks to God:

        1. Read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
        2. Read Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg
        3. Start a Gifts Journal – start counting each day
        4. Make a Gratitude Box
        5. Follow Can I Joy Dare You?

Prayer:

Lord, we do thank You for all the blessings you bestow on us. We are sorry that we forget to say those little words – thank You. Help us learn to be more grateful as we strive to remember this simple little thing. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.

After a conference it seems it takes me a few days to sort myself out. I have a head full of ideas, changes and passion. But where to get the time? Then the Lord reminded me:

It is all in His time.

So counting the gifts again this week – seeking to know that He is always with me.

There is only one picture this week. It was extremely busy week as I attended a writers’ conference. I hope you enjoy reading them without the pictures. I am too tired to even look for them.

 June 10 ~ a gift at 8 am; 12; and 2 pm

      • 8 am: my favourite time of quiet before we being our day – just resting in the Lord, awaiting His Voice
      • 12: lunch time, my favourite – leftovers from last night’s dinner
      • 8 pm: I have finished most of my week’s posts before I head for an award’s ceremony and a 3-day conference

June 11 ~ 3 gifts painted

      • no one can paint like God can paint; look around you, see the details, the shading, the light
      • checked out my craft for Saturday – a torn Tadeo Turtle (not really painted but crafted)
      • putting my paintings and my cards with my paintings in my car to take to the conference

June 12 ~ 3 gifts full

      • starting my morning looking after my grandson- such a blessing; taking him to daycare
      • a very full day – driving to Mississauga; missing the turn and thanking God for my GPS; picking up a friend; trying to find the hotel; getting lunch; getting a snack before the awards dinner; helping on the door with tickets; watching the Awards Gala
      • full of anticipation; waiting for the announcement; hearing Tadeo’s name – and being called to the front to accept the Best Children’s Book of 2013

Janis Cox accepting award

June 13 ~ 3 gifts smelled

      • early morning rain – you know the smell – fresh, yet full of a heavy scent
      • arriving at the conference – smells of trees, grass – but stuffed nose because of allergies
      • someone wore perfume and my friend is severely allergic to perfume; so we asked people not to put on anymore fragrances

June 14 ~ a gift unexpected; unwanted; unlikely

      • unexpected: I woke up before the 6am alarm even though we went to bed late
      • unwanted: I didn’t want to feel sleepy in my classes so I had a tea for lunch (I don’t usually drink tea or coffee)
      • unlikely: It is highly unlikely that I will retain 10 percent of what I am learning at this conference

June 15 ~ 3 gifts in His Word

      • to be able to read His Word and remember the stories
      • the more I read a passage the better I recall it when needed for prayer
      • the idea that we can be inspired by God in our writing and praying before we write is essential

June 16 ~ 3 gifts moving

        • my little grandson is on the move; he is starting to take hesitant steps back and forth, his little face full of the glee of accomplishment
        • all I have done this past week is move stuff; from my house to the car; into the hotel; out of the hotel; into the conference; back into the car; into my daughter’s house and finally back home. Thanks to my hubby for lugging the stuff back into the house. Now to put it away
        • I am moving into a different direction. Watching and waiting to see where God is leading me this time.
