Pennsylvania has been very cold and I decided to wear my new "Choose Joy" sweatshirt to have my blood drawn before my doctor's visit. While I was registering, an elderly Amish Lady was registering across from me. She saw a quick glance of my shirt and asked me to show her the shirt again. I opened my coat and let her read aloud "Choose Joy". Then she buried her face in her hands and wept, visibly moved. She looked at me after a moment and said that she needed to remember to choose joy every day; and that choosing joy would have changed her whole life. Then I noticed that the entire registration area had stopped and was listening to this beautiful heartfelt exchange. I got goosebumps from my head to my ankles! God was truly present at that moment. What an amazing Christmas gift both the Amish lady and I had received. And all due to a simple phrase on a sweatshirt.
Love how soft it is and fits great. I am 5 ft. 6 inches, 130 lbs., and a small is a comfortable loose fit.
I'm 5'10 and a size 6- ordered a small. It's a little more fitted around the bottom band than I like- kind of like old school sweatshirts- but the arms and length are good. Material is very soft- I got concerned after I washed it as there was lots of fuzz coming off the inside but once it dried it was ok. Will look forward to wearing it on Thanksgiving! Beautiful color too- I got the maroon.
