Don’t we all love to look at old pictures? It is so fun and brings such joy!
Some time ago I was reading another Gretchen Rubin book called “The Happiness Project“. She was working on her project which included creating a “seasonal table” where she kept pictures of her girls from the past. She would swap them out at different seasons. For example they took an annual Valentines photo and sent cards instead of at Christmas. So every year at Valentines Day she would pull out all the past photos and display them on her holiday table. I got to thinking that one could do this for all the seasons. I have started going through my pictures and making categories to create such a space that I can swap out seasonally. Christmas, Pascha, summer, fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc. It will be such fun.
In the mean time I’ve sound some fun pictures to share with you all!
This is the sweet grandma that taught me about letter-writing. She sent birthday cards to missionaries all over the world! I want to be like her.
I am an Orthodox Christian, a deacon’s wife, a mother, and an aspiring Kindler of Joy.
I believe I’ve begun to understand (finally), by the grace of God, where we can begin to find happiness. True happiness. My heart longs for a deeper connection to those around me and to creation. I want to feel joy not only in myself but to see it on the face of people I love and those that God brings my way.
Thus, begins my journey to become a Kindler of Joy. It is a journey, a path of learning and growing. So I’ve created my blog as a reminder to myself, daily, to open my eyes and find the beauty and joy around me. I long to share this joy, to spread this joy and to inspire others to become Kindlers of Joy. When we kindle joy in others we spread a light throughout this dark world. A light that is desperately needed.
Won't you join me in spreading this light, this joy?

What great pictures! I especially like the one of the four generations of ladies.
Thank you, Julie! I love that picture too!
