Joy In My Heart

Joy in My Heart


Joy in my heart
and peace in my soul;
praise be to God
for making me whole.
Trial and tribulation;
yes, sometimes we must wait.
Oh, what jubilation
and isn't it just great
to know without a doubt
we don't have to worry
'cause Jesus brought us out
and we don't have to hurry
to get to where we're goin'.
His mercy and love He's always showin'.
Safe and sound we'll always be,
'cause Jesus loves you and me.

Psalm 4:7-8
You have filled my heart with greater joy
than when their grain and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace
for you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
