Word of the Year: JOY

My word for last year was encouragement.


This year it's JOY.


I'm looking for JOY and I'm committing
my heart to seeking JOY.


JOY in my home,
in our homeschool,
in my marriage,
in my kitchen,
in my classes,
in the garden,
in all places.


But even more importantly,
I'm seeking JOY
in sorrow,
in sickness,
in anger,
in frustration,
in irritation
in all things.


I'm going to make a conscious
effort to make my attitude
JOYFUL.


Wishing you homeschool blessings and JOY,

Yeah..I find it can be really hard to be joyful sometimes when everyone is grumpy or mad. So I think it will be a big commitment!
