It may be a bit late to be starting out, but all the same these last few weeks I have been considering a “word for 2015” to frame my year. In 2013 I picked the word creative with the hope that it would inspire me to get back to quilting and push me to craft with the girls. In someways it did, and in some it didn’t. I pretty much kept that word for my theme throughout 2014 as well going through the miscarriage, a new pregnancy, birth of a perfectly large baby boy, and seeing the girls change and grow.
This year I choose the word up.
I want to get up in the morning and start a full day.
I want to look up and truly consider God and His will in everything I do and say.
I want to concern myself diligently with keeping up with my blogging tasks.
I want to tidy up our home and implant a desire in my children to have a good house-keeping.
Most of all, I want to go up and not down in my emotions. I have a wonderful life and even with the bumps and turns I am so abundantly blessed and this year I really want to focus on the uplifting and not so much of the upheaval that negativity can attach. There is evil in the world and it can bring one down, but I personally want to fight for the blissful up direction instead.
I chose up. What do you choose?
Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
Isaiah 40:4 (NIV)
