Choose Joy in 2011 - Happy New Year!

I made this framed 'Choose Joy' sign based on phrases that I hear from my daughter. Phrases such as ...

'Choose Joy' 'Scatter Kindness' 'Plant Love' 'Live Life'

These all tend to revolve around the theme to love one another.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34 - 35 (NIV). When I read this verse I can't help but to think of the lyrics from a song that the Carpenters used to sing:

What the world needs now is love sweet love, It's the only thing that there's just too little of. What the world needs now is love sweet love, no not just for some but for everyone.

I am making a conscious effort this year to Choose Joy, Scatter Kindness, Plant Love, and Live Life.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. " James 1:2-6 (NIV)

Won't you join me and we'll all sing ...

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on. (DC lyrics)
