Joy is in my heart on day three of 100 days of Joy and Psalms. Looking back through old photos for 'joy' moments through out the years, this was one of my favorites. Baby Giggles. It is my mom with my oldest son, their first grandchild, Justin. Justin will be 37 this year, so this was about 36 years ago.
He was a delight for all of us being the first born grandchild. Whenever we would visit my mom and dad, his baby giggles would fill the house. His joy was contagious and we would all smile watching this sweet baby take delight in such a simple creature as a bird.
Those tiny moments in life make a memory forever etched inside of us. A grandmother's smile of encouragement and a grandchild's trust and love with a new life experience still bringing joy to my heart this day.
Words of my heart, Laurie

"My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart. God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day. If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow. He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment. Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made. The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads.
I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High." Psalm 7:10-17
