In the past few days I have noticed a trend in the blogosphere: choosing a word for the year. I have seen such inspired things as Quiet, Love, Joy, etc. And the inspired ways those words were brought to the authors. And so I sit here and wonder what my word for a whole year would be.
Did I mention that I find it very hard to focus and follow through on things? Perhaps that should be my word: Focus. Or maybe: Diligence.
And then I think of what my husband would choose for me: Organized.
What other voices in my life might choose: Peace, Respect, Honor...
But what does that One Voice speak into my existence? What does He say about this year, about me?
Favored. Renewed. Beloved. Redeemed. Healed. Strengthened. Graced.
And in this moment I realize that I don't have one word to define my life this year. I have THE Word.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
