There is an acrostic for JOY that I love and have taught on several occasions. J is for Jesus, O is for Others and Y is for You. That is where we will find joy and fulfillment, living first for Jesus, for others and then for yourself. I find people who live strictly for themselves are constantly frustrated and feel like they have not achieved anything of real significance. I try to be like David in the Bible who said to God, "Early will I seek thee." If I seek God first thing in the morning, and spend time with him in meditation and prayer, then I have something to give somebody else. At the end of the day, I feel fulfilled and I can enjoy a life filled with JOY!
Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday! You must check out A Southern Daydreamer and see all of the outdoor pictures. It always proves to be very interesting and again I want to thank Susan for hosting this fun day! My pictures today are from the trip we took out west a couple of weeks ago. This shows all of the boats at a marina in Bellingham, Washington. I loved the view showing the wild rose bushes, the craggy rocks, the water and the picturesque boats.

My oldest daughter and I with her kids. Her poor hubby had to work the whole time we were there, so I don't have any pics of him at all. I love the water in the back ground here. We have enjoyed this walk along the shore many times and it was so good to revisit this lovely harbour.
I hope you enjoyed my little visual trip to Bellingham Harbour, it is such a lovely place and Bellingham is going to great lengths to recover more and more of the harbour and make it visitor friendly.
Have a wonderful day! And may the sun shine on you wherever you may be!
