For the first time, I’ve decided to join with other bloggers in choosing one word for this year. Instead of listing a bunch of resolutions that won’t last past a few months, if that, I’m choosing this one word. Joy.
For several months now, I’ve slowly been losing my joy, and am at a point where I really feel no joy at all. I’ve been dealing with the stress of an as yet undiagnosed illness, along with other stresses in general. I’ve missed more church than I’ve been able to attend, and I love church. I love being in the music ministry, but have needed to step down from that, as well.
I’m not able to work in the nursery at this time, either. The last time I was scheduled, I was afraid of dropping a baby, as a result of the weakness I’ve had for several months.
So, along with aggressively trying to find out what is wrong with me this year, I intend to try as hard as I can to get my joy back. Without it, I am bereft. If you are a believer, I do covet your prayers for me on this, and thank you for reading.
