Taking Back The Joy

Hi Everyone,

It is the second day of 2018 but the first day of the rest of your life. If you have been around here a little while you might realize life has been a bit hard for me over the last couple years. So this year is going to be the year that I "Take Back the Joy"!

I chose Joy as my word for this year a couple months ago. I told my daughter that we are going to Take and Bring back the Joy this year one day on our way to her school in November, and since then I have been thinking about it and planning it.

If you go back in my blog archives and look at my first couple years of blogging you will see that I used to have a lot of fun so let's get back to that shall we? I have big plans for the blog this year and I will reveal them a little at a time as we go. Some will be about sewing some will be about journaling or learning new art forms. So grab your planner and let's get to it :)

Did you choose a word for the year? If so why not comment and tell me what it is. It is always more fun to take a road trip with a friend or two.

Much Love and Joy,
Julie

  1. Oh Julie, I pray that you do have a joyful year. Your attitude is a start. You are an example to me of keeping on keeping on. Go for it!

  2. I chose two words for the year - Use and Thankful. I need to use (and wear) the things I have - I have lots of things! So instead of buying that cute top, I need to wear what I have because I paid good money for it and I like it! Also, I need to remind myself to be thankful for the big and the little.

  6. As the old song says - Joy to the world, all the boys and girls. Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea. Joy to you and me.

  7. I love your energy and attitude for 2018! You deserve it, Julie!

    Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

  8. I just posted a word blog today. If I chose a word, it is Joy as well because I need to remember to find joy in everything I do. It's there, but sometimes you have to think about it a moment to realize it.
    Happy New Year.

  9. I chose JOY for my WORD last year. I just didn't publich it. This year it is COMPLETE. Using the Definition of finish Making or Doing. To me Complete is an ACTION Verb. I gotta DO! I hope 2018 brings you much JOY!
