From our family to yours & word for 2014


From our family to yours,
 Merry Christmas!!!

Hope was my word for 2013, and I have been filled with hope, confused about keeping hope, discouraged and re-energized knowing my hope completely rests in Him, that without hope life is very depressing, that hope is such a wellspring for my heart.

For 2014 I'm clinging to
 Joy.
Knowing that in this life with motherhood, and being a wife, and all the emotions that come with foster care that I can do it joyfully. Knowing that as Jessi Connolley said in the "wild mom" class
 "I can't do it all, but I can do what God asks of me, joyfully"
That I have to choose to have joy
That joy is all around me, in the goofiness of my husband
In the laughter of my children
In nature
In the prayer from friends & family
That joy can even be found while doing the dishes and scrubbing the toilets.

J.O.Y.
