Choose Joy

Start a blog?? What in the world for!  There are enough words floating around out there in cyberspace.  Why do I have to add mine to the mix?  

And yet, over the past 2 years the niggling thought, the odd comment from a friend - "You should start a blog" - wouldn't go away.

So here I sit on this learning curve.  Bear with me as I fashion and piece this project together.

Meanwhile welcome to my world, where I choose joy.

I am not blissfully oblivious to the things going on in the world around me.  Heaven knows I have had and continue to have troubles of my own.  But I do choose not to make that my focus.

One thing I know.  We can choose joy.  After all, isn't joy actually looking for God at work - even in the tough times?

Join me as I look for scraps of joy in everyday life.  I look forward to your company.


  1. Great beginning, Joy! I look forward to following your explorations into joy. :)

  2. Way to go, Joy. I'm so glad you've decided to venture out and put your words down for us to read and en"joy."

  3. I love your title and the lilac reminds me of spring!
    Congratulations fellow writer on your accomplishment!
