Why I choose joy
I'm a daughter of the King, grafted in by grace and trying to walk daily in His truth. I live in China with my best friend and hubby, where we own/manage a western restaurant. I'm a homeschooling mom of 4, with one more in away at college..
I am not so different from you. There are many things that happen in my life everyday that I have no control over. I can't determine what will happen, but I can determine how I will think and I how I will act. I choose to take action when I feel like giving up. I choose to make a difference when it doesn't seem to matter. I choose to love the unlovable. I choose the rough and narrow path, because it strengthens me. I choose to make joy a part of who I am.
