Choose Joy


“Joy does not simply happen to us.  We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” – Henri Nouwen

With a heavy heart, I write today to give honor to a woman who inspired, challenged and changed so many.  I never met her, but I got to know her through the words on a page. The latest post I read said she was heading home to be with the Lord. 

Even though her body was failing her, she always found a way to choose joy.   I never understood why God did not heal her from this failing disease, and I guess I will never know.  But what I do know is that I will never be the same and for that I am truly grateful.

So, in honor of her beautiful and inspiring life, I say…







today and always.
