2010, you are just around the corner. I don't know you yet, and you are full of scary unknowns, but I hope we get along fine. I have just one resolve with which to greet you: to be happy. And not in the sort of "I-just-want-what-I-need-to-be-happy" but in the active, honest choosing of joy. Henri Nouwen said, "Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day."

I choose joy in 2010.

[I also choose to have a little blog hiatus. Life is busy in January including, among other things, three weddings in three different states of Australia! I'll see you all again in February. xx]


  1. Joy is a very good thing to choose for the new year! I love that quote, too :)

    I hope you have a blessed 2010 and your hopes and dreams come true, according to God's plans <3

  2. Good on you Danielle!!! I choose joy with you.

    Enjoy your hiatus and I'm looking forward to your return....

  3. I just discovered your blog and I can't even work out backwards how I got here but I have really enjoyed reading it!
    Just wanted to give you a shout out and I LOVED that youtube clip of the little boy playing Jason Mraz's I'm Yours. I've honestly watched it way too many times to count :)

  4. I hope you're enjoying your time off and the weddings too! :)
    When will your sis be getting married?
    Happy new year!

  5. Looking forward to your return!
