One Little Word-Joy 2012

As the year is coming to a close, so does my focus on the word JOY! Although I know all the words I have chosen over the years have carried with me and become a part of my everyday life. It has been good for me to think about, write about, make pages about the word “JOY”. I believe it has helped me to recapture a deep abiding joy. Do I have it all the time? No. Sorrow visited me August 8, 2011 and my life has been very different.
The movement between sorrow and joy is as thin as the veil. The second half of this year, I began to know joy more than sorrow. I also know it comes not from me. An inner peace has enveloped me and I feel so much stronger. I am anxious to move ahead with joy 2012, hope 2011, courage 2010, and in 2013, I choose - LIVE as my “One Little Word”.
I want to live and feel alive. I want to live renewed. I want to live refreshed. I want to live joyfully. I want to live to embrace. I want to live to nurture. I want to live to have grace. I want to live to extend mercy. I want to live open to possibilities. I want to live to love.
