When asked the simple question...What brings you joy? How hard would it be for you to answer? I mean, what truly makes you happy? Is it knowing that you are loved? Hearing your kids or grandkids giggles? Is it sleeping late or eating chocolate until youre sick? I have been studying this recently in my Bible Study. I mean I know that Jesus is my only joy. He is my everything. But I have also been searching for the things that make me truly happy. We all have to take the bad stuff with the good. I KNOW this. But my focus of the new year is going to be the good. I can handle BAD, if it is working TOWARDS something good. I am hereby declaring the year 2012 the year of pure JOY for me. I am not going to partake in ANYTHING that does not have the purpose of bringing joy. I am doing away with relationships that do nothing but cause me strife, I am getting rid of habits that hurt me and dont bring me joy. Yes, friends....JOY is my new motto.
