Happy New Year! I wish you & your family blessings in 2010!
For the last 2 years I have shared with you the tradition of choosing a word, or theme, for the year. I have never been into making New Year's Resolutions. So, when a friend of mine shared this idea with me a few years ago, I loved it.
In case you haven't heard of this before, here's the scoop. Instead of making New Year's Resolutions (which no one seems to keep anyway), why not have a "word" or theme for the year for yourself.
For example, in 2008, my word was "Balance". I wanted to strive to balance all my roles....Christian, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and the list goes on. Another friend chose "Open". She wanted to open her ears, her home, and be open to new opportunities. Last year I chose the word "Imitate". I wanted to focus on Imitating Christ first and foremost.
This year my word is "Focus". As a Mom to a 5 week old, 4 yr old, & 7 yr old, life is pretty hectic for me right now. In the midst of Christmas & having a baby over the past month....I feel myself really missing my time w/ God. So, this year I need to be sure in the midst of the chaos of mommyhood, that I don't lose sight of what my focus should be...my relationship w/ God.
What is your word for 2010?
