Do not let anyone steal your joy!

Good morning to everyone.  I hope you have an incredible day.  One of the scriptures that I live by is in John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." I am a firm believer that we can choose to allow others to steal our joy.  This scripture says that we do NOT have to allow that to happen simply by claiming the written scripture.

I know we are not impervious to challenges in life just like everyone but, keep in mind, Christians are not perfect just forgiven.  The Bible says Matthew 5:45 that it will rain on the just and the un-just alike.  When people in this life tries to steal your joy, remember you know the author of humanity and He says, He came that we can have an abundant life of JOY.

All of this to say, JOY comes when your priorities are set correctly.  

Remember JOY is (J)esus, (O)thers, then (Y)ourself.

So, have an incredible day and find your favor with God and do not let anybody steal your joy!

Blast from the past...

I just happened to be looking around at lunchtime and found a link to my original WHATIZ site.  I was blown away by how BAD my writing was back in 2006.  I love the fact that I can look back at the crazy stuff that I was going through.  The link will not (unfortunately) show any of the pictures but it was wonderful just reading about the past.

That said, I remember a time when I had an option to copy (at the time) the contents of into a book form and thought, "Why would I want to do that?"  Well, I wish I would have done that just to capture the pictures.

If you would like to reminisce by means of an old website/blog, go to

So, let's start this off with what is happening right now...

I am working at Nationwide Children's Hospital Research Institute as a System Analyst II.  Peggy is still at Grange Insurance as a Business Analyst. 

A couple weeks ago, Peggy, my brother Danny, sis-in-law Jill, niece Brittnii and her boyfriend got back from a week at Unico (Riveria Maya, Mexico) all-inclusive resort.  It was a week of a lot of floating and one day of incredible fishing.  Apparently, we did well.  We caught 48 Mahi Mahi all being 10-15 lbs each but one my brother caught that was like 30 lbs.

I had an incredible time with Peggy and family and really needed the rest.

Hopefully, you can see the pictures (HERE)
