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.
