WOYWW: Share the JOY!

2013, here I come!
But some things never change-
I'm still showing off my desk as it is
Although, I have been at the beach the past few days
and I am working on a round table in a
beach house in Peninsula de Punta Fuego,

This morning there was no one at the beach.

A really nice place to ponder
as Mary did!
"Mary kept all these things,
reflecting on them in her heart."
Luke 2:19
And a good thing to do at the start of the year.

My word for the year,
actually WORDS-
"Share the JOY,
Share the JOURNEY."
This is what I came up with after "pondering".

"Who are you?"
John the Baptist was asked exactly this question.
He knew who he was, 
he knew his purpose and mission.
Do we?
I think we have to start from the truth
which we know from the Bible-
that we are beloved daughters of the King!
Hence my little crown above!
That we are forgiven,
that there is abundant grace for us.
The future, 2013, is looking good!
A blessed new year to everyone! 

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

This week, chose
#15, Zena of 
Join her on her journey 
of living intentionally!

to leave a comment
