Sing, Sing a Song

When you're talking to someone, does a word ever jump out at you and you immediately connect it to a song lyric and then you have to sing that lyric? I have done that most of my life. It drove Peyton crazy when I would do that. I thought it was funny. What was even funnier? WHEN HE STARTED DOING IT. The first time he did, he looked at me in shock. I love the influence we can have on our kids.

I blogged about this tonight because I did it when Tom and I went to Wal-Mart. I realized it was the first time in 19 months. I am More than a Conqueror. God is so good. My JOY is showing!!!! Joy is a fruit of the Spirit, so I know it never left me. There was just some stuff covering it up. I choose to walk in JOY!

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Do any of y'all do this (the singing thing), or is it just me? I really want to know. (I put that "y'all" in for you Jake)

I do that too, although I have never admitted to anyone until now. I think it is so cool how you put, I choose JOY. I am going to choose JOY too. I love to sing. It drives my Mary-Kate crazy. She says "Mom turn off the mus-kick."

Thanks for the y'all!
I can't say that I do this, but friends at work do. All. The. Time.
