ONE WORD 2011

My friend Alece tweeted on New Years Day about the one word "resolution," if you will, that she was planning on focusing on for 2011.

After seeing that tweet, and thinking about it for a week, i believe I've come up with one word that i can focus on and apply to several areas of my life.

My One Word for 2011 is CHANGE.

Change the way i think and feel about myself and others. Do i see people from a Christ like perspective?

Change my spending habits. Am i a good steward of what God has entrusted to me?

Change how i impact the world around me.

Am i being the hands and feet of Christ?

Am i caring for the widows and the poor? 

The marginalized?

Am i being the change i want to see in the world?

Am i part of the solution, the cause for Christ or am i contributing to the problem, the stereotype?

I'm a little frightened. Change can be a scary thing.

Change can also be a good thing.

What is your One Word for 2011?

change scares me -- you are so, so brave! ;)

change is so hard, but we get so much more from it when we embrace it whole-heartedly. this is going to be an amazing year of growth.

Thank you for your kind comments! I am so sorry to be so derelict in responding to them. Since this post, there have been many changes in our lives...most of them good. I have been in school full time and studying like a crazy woman. Shawn and The brothers have really been rolling with the punches and filling in where necessary with meal prep and housework so I can be super student. They have been so supportive! Gotta love my boys!!!!
