2013 came and went
This past year was a year that challenged me
Taught me that I need to choose peace
Made me realize that I could endure more than I thought
Taught me to love deeper.
Im not one to make a list of resolutions and last year I choose a word focus on... Peace. I saw how this word was needed in more ways than I realized for this past year. My heart was restless and full of worry. Choosing and focusing on Peace and where true peace comes from changed me for the better.
I have have been praying for a word for this year... and I think I have it.
I don't know what this next year will hold but I want to pursue more Joy in my life. There are so many unknowns in the next few months. But one thing that I know is that I want to be intentional with how I live my life and I want to choose Joy. I want to choose joy in my friendships, in my family, in the everyday chaos of life.
