God's Timing Is Always Perfect

This blog is part of a business 5 years in the making...and dreaming and planning. But, God's timing is always perfect! Proverbs 25:11 says, "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." In other words, the right word given at just the right time is a thing of beauty. And so, I am humbled and honored to share with you the business God gave me, which we named a cup of joy.

The mission of a cup of joy is to provide Christian inspirational products and devotionals that encourage and bring joy to women of all ages. Right now, a cup of joy includes this blog, a website ( is currently being developed, so stay tuned!), and various paper products featuring my poetry. All of my poems are based on Scripture and are covered in prayer.

My hope and prayer for this blog is the same as it is for my business: that you will be encouraged and reminded that God wants you to live this life full of His joy!
When we face trials of various kinds, it can be difficult to "consider it joy" (James 1:2). But, we can ask the Holy Spirit to be as a tea pot in filling the tea cups of our hearts to overflowing (John 15:11; Psalm 23:5) with the joy of the Lord, which is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

May God use this blog to glorify Him, to encourage you, and to fill your heart and life with His limitless joy!
