Words to Live By

I have been encouraged by several blogs I read to pick a word (or words) to focus on for the year. Some have picked one and a few have picked 2 or 3. They have spent extended time meditating on these words and applying them to their life in various ways. I decided to do this as well for 2010. I think this will help me focus on a few things. Right now when I look at our life I often get overwhelmed with the needs of my family. So I have spent time asking God for wisdom and words. The words I have settled on this year are:

Simple ..... Intentional ....... Health

So you will probably see these words in my post lots this year. I think they are very appropriate for our life right now.

I am also claiming a verse for our family this year. I have a very precious friend who has faithfully quoted this verse to me over and over during the last few months. She has prayed it for my life and every time she reminds me of it I have felt loved by my Father. I want to share more about this verse in the days to come but for now I want to just share the verse with you:

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. "
Isaiah 43:18-19

I hope you are enjoying the beginning of a New Year with your loved ones.
