My One Word: Joy

     After a year of sorrow and grief, it's time to embrace joy again. Joy is a choice. It's a command from the Lord. You can have joy in the midst of difficult circumstances if you choose to. And I've finally reconciled with the fact that choosing joy doesn't mean I forget about my baby or pretend her loss didn't happen. It also doesn't mean I pretend like the loss doesn't hurt because it still does. It means choosing to believe that God is in control, working all things together for my good, and praising Him.

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again-rejoice! 
Philippians 4:4 (NLT)
