I like to look back at my photos from time to time.  In the process, of reminiscing, I am again reminded of the joy that is possible even when life is difficult.

Today I took the time to look over photos from Jan and Feb of 2018.  These photos brought me joy then and continue to even now as I enjoy the memories.

“For happiness one needs security, but joy can spring

 like a flower even from the cliffs of despair.”

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The Joy Jan and Feb 2018

My Grandchildren always make me smile.

My Valentines Gift from Caleb

Animals bring us joy!

 The beautiful snowfall this year was lovely and made me smile.


Of course food brings us joy:-)

 What a great reminder of all the good things that bring us joy.  What brought you joy this week?

Always remember God’s promise.  I will never leave you or forsake you.

God Bless,

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
