My 2018 word: Joy 2018 verse: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12 NIV

My word does not imply a goal of everyday, every moment smiles and happiness. It implies a deeper feeling of joy in knowing that I am loved and blessed. Brene Brown has some good words about joy, and provides more insight into my outlook for 2018:

“I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude and inspiration.”

Happy New Year!!
