My 2021 Joy Dare- Week 5


Good evening everyone. I hope you have had a joy filled week! I cannot believe that we are in week of this year’s Joy Dare! This year is already flying by so quickly and I don’t know about you but last month with my theme of Intentional Gratitude I found myself growing leaps and bounds.

This month’s theme is Intentional Love and I will have posts. based on that but for right now let’s just into. what we are thankful for this week.


January 29- February 4th

January 29th- A Song heard, a soft word, and a light seen
  • A song heard- actually many songs heard- it brings me great joy to see and hear our kids singing their hearts out for Jesus. Such Joy in their hearts. I appreciate the lyrics that are being embedded on their hearts
  • A soft word- early morning conversations with Ron as we get ready for our day
  • A light seen- the ever so faint of a glimmer of morning kissing the oh-so-black sky
January 30th- 3 old things seen new
  • A stack of picture frames ready to be repurposed into new
  • Old jeans ready to be used for new projects, specifically a hanging organizer for the craft room
  • Old wood ready to be repurposed for a room remodel
January 31- A gift on paper, in person and in a picture
  • On Paper- A card sent my a dear friend to encourage and make me laugh
  • In Person- seeing our teens back in Youth Group- it’s such a gift.
  • In pictures- The pictures that pop up in our facebook memories: toothless kiddos, quotes from Faith Giants spurring on from heaven, verses of encouragement, and funny pictures to make us chuckle.
February 1- 3 Gifts Red
  • a Beautifully hand painted Red Cardinal Card from a good friend
  • 2 red Scarves both gifts from friends that keep me cozy on cold winter days
