Hello! My name is Joy. I'm a 50-something Jesus follower woman trying to find the purpose of this life of mine after tragedy struck, changing its course forever.


Seven months after the death of 'my one and only' and a week after the end of my eleven year marriage, I loaded up my Coton, Max, and moved out-of-state to embark on a journey I would soon learn was all about finding me, again, Joy, as well as finding joy in life, again. 

The last few years of my marriage was that of simply not caring about myself too much. I became clinically depressed, gained weight and began to ask myself, "Is this all there is going to be to my life?"

I know God has a plan for me, and I'm excited to have Him reveal that to me in His timing.

I've had these experiences and will continue to have more experiences..all for a reason; I'm not quite sure what those reasons are just yet.  

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let's smile, again, throughout our whole body, shall we?

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.  Ecclesiastes 1:9

Please, no haters nor judges...have had enough of that in my life. If you don't like what you read or see, please move on; you don't have to be here...no one is making you. If you post hateful comments, I will delete them.
