My word for this year was JOY. hmmm.
When I was young and going to Bible school at DeerCreek Lutheran Church, I remember learning that joy represented:
That was for us to remember the order in which we pray and give thanks. Jesus first, then for others, then yourself. I still think that is a pretty cool formula!
I want to do more thinking and writing on this subject of joy and what it has meant to me throughout this past year. I will do more in the coming days. 💜
