But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us—see that you abound in this grace also.
2 Corinthians 8:7

One Word

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.

One Word.  

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1
