Joy Jars

A very simple Joy Jar for 2015

I admit that I am not a crafty person.  I enjoy crafts, but just to come up with stuff on my way!  My friend Ginger, who is also the Pastor's wife, is extremely creative and came up with these Joy Jars for 2015.  Last Sunday, she passed out a jar to each family.  We are to take these jars and write good things that happen to our family (or personally) on little pieces of paper throughout 2015.  Then on New Year's Eve (December 31, 2015) we will meet back at the church, share a meal, and then share our joy's with each other over the past year.

Examples of items that you can put in your Joy Jar:
  • Surprise gifts
  • Accomplished goals
  • Laugh Out Loud moments
  • Daily blessings
  • It was a God thing
  • The beauty of nature
  • Memories worth saving
  • Answered prayers
  • AND MORE!!!
She even created a Facebook page for it!  Instead of focusing on the negative, which we all do so often, let's make it a point to write down our joy's and fill our jar!
