A writer friend of mine got me into thinking of a word for the beginning of each year. Instead of a New Year's resolution, pick a word that you think may define the coming year. For example, the year after my husband died I chose "surrender". This was all I could do that year just to live one day at a time and to remember that I am a beloved daughter of God, even though my world had been shaken. This word really fit for that year. Last year I chose "hope" as I was beginning to get my bearings as a single parent and hope was glimmering in my mind, even though the death of my spouse still was so very fresh. Now on my third year after his death, I chose the word "content" for 2013. I am finally feeling a bit content with where my life is at this point, even though I still do not like the word widow and really have no idea where the Lord will take me in the future. I am content knowing He's in control and I'm here to follow where He leads. Has anyone else ever picked a word for the new year? Share your thoughts for your 2013 word.
Blessings to you!
