2014: treasured.


A New Year!  And I feel like I have so many posts to catch up on, especially regarding “The List” !  But for now, this has been on my heart today and I really want to get it out there…

I know many people choose a “word of the year” … I think sometimes that is hard to do, not knowing what the year will endure, but I think this is an encouraging act… to define your year in pursuit of moments wrapped up in a single word.  If I had chosen a word for the previous year, I believe that word would have been “Hope”… how greatly that rang true, even in the pursuit of “The List”!  So for this year, I am choosing the word “Treasured” … I have intentions to study this word through Scripture, uphold this word in my actions, and to be hopeful for this word in every day that I awake.

“For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”
[Matthew 6:21]

“But Mary treasured up all these things,
pondering them in her heart.”
[Luke 2:19]

There are many things that I want to treasure… I want to treasure every day and every moment… to treasure Scripture more than food itself… to continue to treasure the people closest to me in life, and to treasure every new experience in life that will arise (aka, The List!).

Does anyone else choose a word for the year?  Would love to hear them!
