I am not sure when or how this practice started.
Choosing one, new little word for the year.
For this girl who is easily distracted and often wonders about the meaning of life, it brings a little bit of focus and meaning to the new year.
This year rather than searching for a new word, It seemed as if my word found me. As I was writing my advent series this year, the word
continued to roll around in my thoughts long after I was done writing. I felt like I was not finished with joy or it was not finished with me. In any case it is a fitting word for this glass half empty girl.
So in saying farewell to the old year and welcoming the new,
I am welcoming joy…
choosing this one little word to journey beside
as I continue to look for God in the midst of each day.
Will you join me?
(with joy, or another word of your choosing)
