came to mind... nor was it the second. But neither of the words I was thinking seemed to be 'it.' I wanted my word to be one that wasn't just 'thought up,' but one that had meaning for me in this upcoming year. In 2009, I chose 'dedication' because I recognized there were areas in my life that needed attention and I was ready to tackle each area head-on. Last year, I chose 'contentment' and 'simplicity.' 2010 brought lots of change for me and included moving to a new state, combining two homes into one, and ajdusting to a 'new' life - both of these words seemed to sum up the goal of all of that.
Last night, for whatever reason, 'renew' kept coming to mind....which led to me remembering Psalm 51:10, 'Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right Spirit within me.' Immediately I knew my word. 'Create.' It is a perfect word for 2011. Chandler and I have been discussing traditions we want to start with OP, things that are important to us that we want to pass to him, things we want to do as a family... This year, we will create the cornerstone for our family.
At some point, I will post some of the things we hope to incorporate into this year and things we want to do with OP. I'm really excited about them and look forward to sharing!
What's your word for 2011?
