2. What is the meaning behind your blog's name?
When I decided to start up my blog back in July 2006 (wow, has it been 4 1/2 years already???), we were very newly-wed (just recently had celebrated our 1st anniversary) and newly-expecting. We were also preparing for our first PCS from our first home in Japan to our current base Stateside. I had some old posts from the previous hosting site I had used to do some blogging, but I wanted something different... I wanted a fresh start on blogger and I needed a name. I remember going through some verses that I liked.
Psalm 5:11 really stuck out to me:
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:
let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:
let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
After reading it over a few times, the phrase "ever joyful" kinda popped into my head. It seemed to stick. When I said it aloud, I decided I liked it... and here I am today. Still trying to live my life with an EverJoyful spirit.
