I’ve been inspired to pick a Word for the year—something to focus on, to aim for, and to make a permanent part of my life.
“Joy” is the first word that came to my mind. I pondered some more and kept coming back to “Joy.” I would like our home to be a joyful one; I would like people to see me as a joyful person. Some of my very favorite people are those who always have a smile on their faces and who strive to see the positive in every situation.
My goal for 2013 is to keep this as my focus, ending the year as a more joyful person and with a more joyful home.
I recently bought these alphabet blocks, so I just changed the word to “Joy” to help remind me. I’ll be looking for more visual ways to keep my word of the year in my mind. (I’m open for suggestions!)
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy.” Psalm 5:11
