The Word

  • 1 Corinthians 16:14
    Do everything in love.
  • Philippians 4:6, 7
    Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

January 15, 2007

I think my word needs to be, "risk." I have this tendency to take the safe route whenever possible or find the easiest, least painful way to resolve things. Makes life quite smooth, but rather boring. And I don't feel like I've grown as much as I could have given some of the opportunities that have come my way.

Or I could just say, "chocolate" and vow to eat more of it. That could work too... ;)


I think that's great- I have found myself doing things right away instead of waiting (I put it away now instead of thinking "I'll do it later") and I have noticed a difference.

I think if I had to pick a word- introspection? I want to think more about things instead of knee jerk reactions. Really concentrate on what Needs to be done, what WANTS to be done, etc....


I am a lurker on your site for several month's now. Love it!

My word for the year is Create. This is wonderfully interpreted in the book "Living Artfully: Creating the Life You Imagine". It is one of my new year resolutions - to live my life more creatively - not just to make things - but to dress differently - with more color - with fun jewelry and accessories; to make my home more cozy and comfortable; to not wait for a special occassion to use the good dishes; to CREATE a more special life on a daily basis.


I think my word for 2007 will be move! As in "move my butt so I stay heart healthy." I agree with you, if we just did what we thought about doing all the time life would be so much easier. So, I'm moving, around the block atleast 3 times a day.

My word is "Appreciate"
Appreciate that I have a nice house to live in
Appreciate that I have a caring husband
Appreciate that I have a spunky, fun daughter
Appreciate that I have wonderful friends
Just appreciate every day.


Hmmm as I sat here thinking about what my word might be, one JUMPED right at me and almost knocked me over...BALANCE.

Aside from maybe trying to be more graceful (just call me Damage Girl!), I think I have to learn equillibrium (sp?) in all the aspects of my life. Hmm, must ponder more...maybe I'll even, gasp (!) post on my blog about it! :)


Great thoughts, Beth! I like Action, myself. I have a huge wire basket full of at least six months' worth of papers to be filed. And of course I'll have to do it now, since taxes are right around the corner. But it would be nicer if I did things when they come up instead of waiting for later.


What a great post and idea Beth!!! I like your choice of words. I think Ill pick, 'opportunities', that's how Im seeing this upcoming year, new opportunities and making sure to make the most of all that come my way.



Hardwood floors! How exciting.

My word of the year? Yikes! One word? How bout a few...


I have alot of goals for 2007 rather than resolutions...


What a great post! There were several commenters who had wonderful words I totally relate to -- I like create and balance and opportunities, as they all represent some of my New Year's Goals. Perhaps I will pick "dream" -- sometimes I'm so focused on these goals that I forget to daydream about the end result and where I hope to be when I've achieved them. I think the daydreams do motivate us to action, to get where we want to go.
