Along with joy was the verse "The joy of the Lord is my strength"
Throughout the year I learned a lot about joy.
It's not easy.
It's a choice to choose it.
But what I really learned is what that verse means.
It doesn't mean that I will suddenly have joy and then have strength, but God's joy, not mine, HIS will give me strength. And it has.
Choosing to be joyful is tough for me.
Sometimes I forget life doesn't have to be so serious.
Right before Christmas we received this little gift from our foster daughter
More & more I don't believe in coincidence, but in seeing God's hand in the little & big things.
Good bye 2014.
