This year's been interesting in that I didn't feel a big WHOOSH with the word thing.
I could explain everything I was looking for in a few sentences but somehow the word wasn't coming.
So I joined a Facebook group and wrote on there... and then I got emailed with TONS of great ideas. Some were nice... but not for me...and some were great and needed more thought.
And then I had a fleeting thought, like this is going the way all my bad ideas go - too much advice and not trusting my own instincts enough.
So I stopped reading for a day or so and I took out my worksheets and I did the work.
And I had a word that was perfect.
I made a list last night of things outstanding before the work week starts and one of those was taking photos for the blog.
This afternoon I pulled out the big camera, took two photos and I thought, "what the heck! this word doesn't feel right anymore". It's definitely a good support word, but not THE word.
So I asked myself, "which word is speaking to my heart right now?" (not which word would I LIKE to have...)
and a word came to mind/ heart.
I feel relatively sure of this word but just in case, I went and googled (Olive Treed?) that word to see how many times it appeared in the Bible and it's 62, if you were wondering. I read most of those references quickly and it's looking/ feeling good.
But JUST IN CASE... I'm going to sit with it for a day or two longer to see if it still feels right.
To end off, I thought I'd leave you with some words from my top 10 that didn't make the top 5 :)
Now, let's have some fun...
Anyone want to guess what my old and new words are?
(Jayme, last year you guessed correctly!)
Do you have a word? Share in the comments.
