All December long I have shared with you the submissions for a challenge I made to some of my writer friends; to write about Joy using only 100 words. It’s not as easy as you think it would be. As writers, we LOVE words, and sometimes we abuse them by using too many words! You can read the prior posts in this series here: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Christmas Monday, Christmas Wednesday
I took part in this challenge as well so, here is my: Joy in 100 Words and below is some information going into the new year. Enjoy!
Joy is something we live from, not to live for.
Joy is found in my everyday choices and heart attitudes.
Joy is hearing the soft night slumber of two loud and spicy boys.
Joy is knowing my calling and watching opportunity unfold before me.
Joy is catching a glimpse of the pleased smile my husband sports when he sees me walk into the room.
Joy is feeling the confidence of Christ within when circumstances around me seem too daunting to conquer.
Joy is seeing spiritual growth in those I love.
Joy is my child’s warm embrace.
Joy is believing Christ.
Next month my guest post series will be on different aspects of parenting. I am so looking forward to sharing the spectacular encouragement, advice, and stories my guests have to share with you. I look forward to your reaction and participation in the conversation.
For 2016 I am working on several projects beside the blog, including a children’s book and two devotional books. I could truly use your prayers for these projects. I tend to sometimes take on too much at once, so please pray for me as I work on these projects in the next coming months. I hope to share some updates with you as I work on these projects.
Thank you to all the readers and commenters these past 6 months. It has been so exciting to watch this little blog begin it’s journey. I will be taking next week off from writing here, but there are over 100 posts on this blog to keep you entertained until I return on January 4th. I listed some of my favorite posts here. Until then enjoy your families today; Merry Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Year!
The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
(Numbers 6:24-26 ESV)
