J.O.Y.S = JESUS OTHERS YOU SIMPLIFY
JESUS = devotional plan for the year :
1.Read the New Testament through in my Serenity Bible NKJV in the mornings and parallell that with my new worship NIV Bible in the evenings.
2.I want to clear my devotional reading shelves in the library - keeping the meaningful ones, gifting or dicarding those I no longer treasure.
3.I want my "Huddle" comments to be scripture or lines from songs
4.Strive to improve my prayer life, Abide in Jesus and He abide in me.
OTHERS = Study, share and move into my call to Grief Ministry
1.Comfort others as I have been comforted, through the stages of prepatory grief, planning and giving care, loss and greiving stages.
YOU = Oh, that is me.
