Stepping Towards Joy

This month I am taking small steps towards joy. Every day I am making the decision to be more joy-filled.

I am using kind words when I speak instead of tight-lipped angry words.

I am focusing on my husband's strengths instead of his weaknesses. I am showing him how much I appreciate him through my actions and words. 

I am noticing when my children listen instead of when they do not. I love them with smiles, hugs, and laughter.

I forgive others and myself daily. Time is wasted on being hurt, bitter or embarrassed. I am moving on with a smile.

I am letting go of control and letting God take care of me. I remind myself every day that I am a daughter of God. He loves me unconditionally. It is only through Him that I can find true joy. A peaceful and lasting joy.
