Back to the USA, Blogging Ideas, & a Hymn on My Heart

Blog of Joy

Life has slowed down.

I’ve been home from Israel for a month now, and I find myself missing this blog, wanting to post about my experience there, and also wondering where this blog is headed.

Blog of Joy has changed a lot over the years. At first I wanted this blog to be a place where I could share all my creative endeavors (knitting patterns, writing, music, etc.). I had a lot of my knitting patterns and healthy recipes from my previous blogs transferred to this one. But over the past year or so, it mostly became focused on writing about life.

Now I see the blog going in a more creative direction with DIY ideas and crafts and recipes appearing much more often.

I imagine there will still be lots of posts about life and faith and joyfulness (or however one is supposed to summarize my random writings! ha ha!), because one of the best ways that I process life is through writing. This blog has helped me over the years to shape my ideas and figure out my feelings as I turned them from words to sentences to paragraphs. As I look back to posts that I wrote in years past, I see the transforming of a heart. And I see a future with a deeper longing for Yeshua. He is so patient and good to me.

No promises as to how often I’ll be posting, but I do hope to post more regularly.

There might be some more book reviews.

And of course, more about Israel. :)

Life is an adventure.

Blogging is an adventure.

I’m excited to see where it’s headed.

  1. Hello Joy!
    Reading/following a persons “blog” is new to me;yet I find your writings so interesting & inspiring. We have much in common it seems, though I’ve never taken time to write it all done for anyone else to read besides me. Our love ❤️ for Yeshua and Mason Clover’s …..the list goes on.

    Blessings to you.
    Please keep writing.

    Thank you,

    1. Dear Norma,

      Thank you for your comment! It’s a blessing to hear of a another believer in Yeshua, and to know that the blog has been an encouragement to you. That’s so neat how we have a lot in common! :)

      God bless you! ~ Joy
