I want to focus this coming year on Perfect Peace. I want to possibly do a study on peace as it is shared in the Bible. I'm also thinking about ways to make my life and the lives of my family full of peace. I'm not even 100% sure how that will look yet other then to try and take away things that cause stress both individually and as a family I do believe that Peace and Joy go hand in hand so this is a natural progression. I also want to find ways to keep our home peaceful - simple things like playing music throughout the day, helping each family member achieve the things they need to get done during the day (really thinking about school and not getting overwhelmed with projects!), and other simple things like that. I might even look for a piece of artwork for our home that will incorporate my theme word/phrase and that verse. (I still want to find one related to "Joy"!)
Do you pick a theme each year? I know that people either seem to love the idea or think it's crazy! Either way is fine because we are all different people and have different ideas for things like goals and themes!
