For 2014, I decided to go along with the One Little Word campaign and choose a word for the year. Since I recently made birthday goals, I decided focusing on a word for the year to go along with the goals would be a good idea. This year, I am choosing joy. Sometimes it's easy to forget just how much we have to be joyful about. We all have those days---we run late, we forget an appointment, we bleach a load of colored towels, we leave a gallon of milk in the trunk-- I could go on and on. It's on those days, we need to find and choose the joy. So maybe the towels have bleach spots, but remember how you served a friend by babysitting for the afternoon? You were late to church but you were still able to listen to that talk that seemed like it was written just for you. This year, we all need to remember to choose joy, won't you join me?
