have you heard of this?
are you part of it?
i've never done it before, but as i sit here on day 4 of the new year with little motivation
to write lists,
or purge and clean,
or do other productive-type things
that i normally am glad to do at this time of year...
i'm thinking about one word.
could one word make a difference in my life this year?
(didn't you think we'd be driving spaceships by now?)
i had a word in mind
(& i still like that word),
but another word kept popping up in front of me.
like when i picked up the sign my folks gave me for Christmas to consider where i'd like to hang it...
and when i clicked on sevenly.org to see what charity they're supporting and what tshirt they've made...
and then i looked around my house and saw it again and again...
do you think the Lord is trying to lead me in a particular direction? ;)

my favourite definition is #8.my desire for 2013 is to live out the hope that is within me
because of my relationship with Jesus.
(i need to spend some more time thinking about what that will look like.)
hope - a strong and trustworthy anchor
Have you chosen one word for 2013?
