Joyously Accomplishing the Word Out for August

It’s hard to believe that July is already over, and the year is 1/3 of the way complete.
Today being the first Monday of the month can only mean one thing:
                             It is time for the monthly Word Out!
Last month I told you about the terrible incident with the spider and we worked to come up with words to describe reactions to such a thing.   My illness did not end with the spider bite remedy, and I continue to struggle physically.  We are not going to dwell on the struggle, but on the positives that have come from the struggle. 
Think of a time when you’ve been super busy, sick, tired, or just overwhelmed and you can’t seem to catch up with the little things.  The chores begin piling up and then… overwhelmed again.
Determination helps you make a plan.  You act on the plan.  And SUDDENLY things begin to get done and you have started to feel unusually happy and accomplished in each little task that finds completion.   
Create a word that states your elation, relief, sense of accomplishment, and gratitude for the process.   My word for this isn’t really fantabulous, so a little help re-working it would be greatly appreciated.  Refer to the Scripture verse included in this blog for inspiration.
As you put the thought into this Word Out challenge, you might find yourself listing those little chores that you were grateful to have gotten out of the way so you could focus on the larger tasks.  Those little ones count as much, if not more than, the HUGE ones. 
Remember that nothing is too big or too little for God; and it all matters. 

Phillipians 4:4-7 {KJV}
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say,  Rejoice.  Let your moderation be known unto all men.  The Lord is at hand.  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 
My word is:  Joycomplation!  (Joyous accomplished elation)
I know it’s a bit lame, and I’m sure you can all do better. 
Have fun with this month’s Word Out challenge; and don’t forget to share your new word with us in the comments to this blog.
Pay attention to the Son, even when skies are grey. 
Until next time
