Choose Joy 2015


For many of you following me at Sandy’s P.O.V., you didn’t know me in my past blog life when I was blogging at Uncompromising!.   I posted a lot of personal stuff and about my faith.  I was reading a lot of Christian blogs and I found this blogger, Sara (click to see her website), who just spoke to my heart.

Unfortunately, I was reading her posts at the very end of her life.  She was 38 years old and living with a disease called ankylosing spondylosis. Interestingly enough, I had a friend who was living with A.S. as well.  But my friend, Phyllis, wasn’t really living.  She was willing herself to die and on 12/31/2010 she did.

Five Minute Friday: Write

Today’s Five Minute Friday prompt from Lisa-Jo Baker is WRITE. I have to write for five minutes on that topic.

write, heart, scribe

from “free to share and use” images

I’m just starting to like this writing-thing that I do on my blogs.  The group of 4 other bloggers that meet together to discuss ideas, layouts, blog names, and other accomplishments has made me more accountable and stronger in the blogging experience.

These girlfriends I have invite each other to share giveaways and promote one another.   They poll each other for blog post fodder.  We all laugh and cry and support each other.  Just like girlfriends in this life should.  The first people I told about a blogging win were my blogging girlfriends.  I know two of them from college and one of the other girls introduced the other two and we’ve never met.  And instead of being jealous of the others’ wins, we love and congratulate.

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
John 15:12-15
