My name is Nancy Pelander Johnson. Welcome to my first blog, "Joyful Jottings!"
But wait. Isn't today's title a bit off-track? After all, this is a blog devoted to the joy of writing, the joy of knowing God's Word, and the joy of finding positive things in life...so what's this about 'how many days until Christmas?' (Good grief--it's only August!)
You may be shaking your head in agreement. Yep--it's only August! Who thinks about Christmas in August? (Not me). I must admit I know two people who shop for Christmas during the summer (I'm not one of them). Then, of course, there are the businesses which must plan far ahead for Christmas (I'm not in that category, either). I'm wondering where you fare in preparation?
So, why talk about Christmas? Okay, let me explain. I wanted to find a way to describe "Joyful Jottings," and only the good Lord above knows why my brain works the way it does. While thinking about "Joyful Jottings," one of my favorite Christmas hymns, "Joy to the World" popped into my head. Then came the connection: "Joy Through the Word!" Yes! That is what "Joyful Jottings" is about: finding joy through God's Word, and finding joy through the use of positive words.
Positive words can enhance your life...and the lives of others!
Did you come here today as a writer, a reader, or did you just happen to stumble upon this page? For whatever reason you came, thank you for visiting! Thoughts for your day are listed below:
2 Thoughts for Your Day:
1).The joy of Christmas doesn't have to wear off. Jesus came to spread the good news of faith. Keep that good news close to your heart every day, for it is joyful news!
2).What word(s) or phrase have you used within the past day through either writing or speaking, that brought joy to someone?
P.S. - I don't know if you've counted the days until Christmas. I haven't! (It comes whether I'm ready or not). My personal focus this year will be to prepare my heart...figure the rest will follow.
Come back to "Joyful Jottings" each Tuesday morning for the latest post!
