sending joy via postagram

  Hang on to your hats, friends: I finally moved up from my five year old flip phone to an iPhone. Yippeee! As one of my brothers said, “Welcome to 2005!”   I have already begun to populate my phone with different apps: Wunderground (weather), Camera+ (improved photography capabilities), Candy Crush *she admits with embarrassment*, […]

Discovering Joy

Welcome to the second half of Discovering Joy. If you missed the first, you can read it here.

There is something very ironic about this morning as I write this post while simultaneously printing out a twenty-five day project list for being organized throughout the Christmas season. Oh, and did I say that my gifts aren’t wrapped, I have come down with a cold, family has started to arrive for the holiday (hooray!), […]

I rounded up five encouraging posts for you earlier this week, and I have five more for you here, just in case you’ve started to climb back up that hill towards Panic Peak. Not that I’ve ever done that… Read on, and enjoy and embrace the gift of love, hope and encouragement I humbly offer […]
