Pastor Jeff Manion of Ada Bible Church gives his definition of "joy"
Going through my sermon notes about "Choosing Joy--Under Pressure"

Early Sunday morning: Are you watching Hurricane Irma on television?


Hurricane Irma
It's 5:30 a.m., Sunday and we are watching Hurricane Irma


When I got up to pee overnight, I couldn't help think about the great carpet I was walking on.  It was beautifully warm and dry, unlike those in Florida this morning as Hurricane Irma roars through.

It also make me think about watching the storm on CNN.  I finally gave in at 5:30 a.m.  The bad part is still coming.  My wife and I are up.  We are watching and praying for people who need lots of protection right now and in the days ahead.
