My word for 2011 was good to me.
I'd chosen it shortly after my father-in-law's death, his battle with cancer and a whole host of other junk in 2010. It seemed the perfect word. Necessary.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
When craziness would abound, I'd meditate on the passage above. And I found great peace, despite the difficult circumstances surrounding me.
It was the perfect word. But a year has passed and it's time for a change. My new word [after much hemming and hawing] is:
In 2012, I want to get back to why I began this blogging journey in the first place. I want to seek out what inspires me in the hope that I will in turn, inspire others. To be all that God wants me to be. To be a better mother, wife, writer, and photographer.
I will be looking for inspiration in everyday moments, in God's word, through my lens, and in the world around me. Keeping my heart and eyes open. Not allowing busy-ness to take over and cloud my vision. To be motivated (and motivate others) to change. To grow.
How about you? Have you chosen a word for 2012? If so, I'd love to hear what it is! [Just add it as a comment to this post.] Or, if you have NO CLUE what I'm talking about and would like to learn more about Ali Edwards' "One Little Word" challenge, click HERE.
