Happy November 1, everyone! Welcome to The Season of Joy begins with James Avery.
I started the Season of Joy celebrations a couple of years ago when the pandemic hit…this season on my blog runs from November 1 to the end of the year.
WHAT THE SEASON OF JOY MEANS
It means that each day…one day at a time…I will seek to bring you optimism, hope, smiles….JOY! No matter what is happening around you….so that you can thoroughly enjoy this time of year.
Full disclosure here…my life is not perfect. No one has a perfect life without struggles or strife. No one is not facing a challenge or trial of some type.
However, I have learned that true joy and peace within will help me to persevere through the biggest trials I face. This is not about happiness…it is about joy. There is a difference.
Joy within is overall contentment and peace. It means I not allow fears and anxiety to rule the day. My goal for each of you is to enter 2022 with a smile and hope for your future.
So, let my Season of Joy begin during my favorite time of year as we celebrate family, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas.
THE SEASON OF JOY BEGINS WITH JAMES AVERY
It is perfect then to begin The Season of Joy with James Avery Craftsman Jewelry…for your consideration for gifts.
The wonderful family at James Avery recently sent to me the HOLD FAST LEATHER BRACELET.
It arrived at the perfect time, when I needed to be reminded to Hold Fast through all going on around me….
HOLD FAST in my faith
HOLD FAST to the Word of God and His promises
HOLD FAST to the principles this country was founded upon
HOLD FAST to my family and friends
HOLD FAST to my love for all of God’s creations
HOLD FAST to who I am and my passions
One of the reasons I love this brand and have for over 30 years is because of the meaning behind their creations.
Over the years, I have gifted so many pieces from James Avery…and they are always worn and loved.
As I thought about my HOLD FAST bracelet, I remembered this quote from the first year I began the Season of Joy.
Someone else may also need this reminder today….Hold Fast…things may actually be falling into place!
I hope you will join me today and throughout the remainder of 2021 for the Season of Joy…you are a huge part of my joy every day.
