My Word of the Year

Last year was my first time to name the year.

It was a perfect fit for 2011.

As the new year rolled around, themes started running through my head.

I once again asked God to show me and He was quick to reply.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

Oh how appropriate … and oh how uncomfortable!!

The ideas started tumbling in my head.

I want to STRETCH …

… my FAITH

  • give Christ His rightful position as ruler of my time
  • encourage others with the Word of God
  • banish the fears I still carry around after losing a child

… my BLOG

  • share more of our daily life
  • cheer on homeschooling moms
  • build up community

… my FINANCES

… my HABITS

  • continue our shift towards whole foods
  • 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week
  • force myself into an earlier bedtime

… my HOMEMAKING

  • scatter scripture throughout our home
  • decorate for my family, not for a design mag
  • shop my house and re-purpose what we have

… my CREATIVITY

  • start doodling
  • learn how to quill
  • put my new watercolor pencils to use

… my COMFORT ZONE

  • offer guidance to a group of future homeschoolers
  • teach a Couponing 101 class
  • promote my husband’s business

I hope that posting this long list will hold me accountable (gulp)!!
