i love the start of a new year

so much potential

so many possibilities lie ahead


i spent the first day of 2015 reflecting and journaling

a luxury that did my soul good

as i look back, so much to be grateful for

as i look ahead, a fresh path of possibilities

dreams and goals

wondering what God has in store for me


to keep me focused i like to choose one word every year

one little word

a word that resonates with me

encompasses what i need to work on

a word that will help me grow


last year my word was SHINE

i chose this passage to give it spiritual meaning

‘let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.’ – Matthew 5:16


this year my one little word is BECOME

it means to change and to grow

i want to focus on more of what God wants than what i want

to use my gifts that he’s blessed me with

and to live out my calling ( and discover what that is!)

i couldn’t decide which passage i liked best, so i’m using two

‘. . .be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will..’ – Romans 12:2


‘…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ – Philippians 1:6


i encourage you to choose your own little word

find a scripture passage to help define it

pray about it

then live it everyday the best you can


here’s to a year of possibilities

and to a gracious God who walks with us every step of the way
