Hi,  I’m Jackie.  I am married to Judge and a mom of two sons, a mother-in-law to a beautiful daughter-in-law, and a Grams to Eli and Emmy and Ella.  We live in Knoxville, Tennessee and are Tennessee Vol football fans.

I am also a chaser of joy.  The more I desire it in my life the closer I feel to God. In Scripture we are told that He delights in us! And we are often told to delight ourselves in Him or to take joy, rejoice!  Can you imagine!  Before creation, knowing He would bear the burden for our sin, He still created us so that we could enjoy and glorify Him. Yes. . . for us to enjoy the most beautiful, glorious supreme Being in the world! How wonderful of Him! Love and joy, I have found, go hand in hand. The more I seek to enjoy Him the more I love Him. We also know that delight in Him carries the responsibility to rejoice at all times not just when we are happy. 1 Peter 4:13 says: But rejoice that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed at the revelation of His glory.

I want you to tell me what you are passionate about and what you would like to see me blog about.Tell me your concerns and your delights. Please use the contact page. It’s there for your comments and I want to hear them. It’s a little cumbersome since you to have to click on a different page to leave a comment but please take the time. It’s important that I hear from you.

I would also like for you to join me every week. On the top right hand side of the blog and contact pages you have the opportunity to follow me. I hope you will do that to receive my posts every weekend.

May you enjoy all of God’s blessings,                                                                                                           Jackie
