In 2012, my word was hope. God showed up in the blessings.
In 2013, my word is purpose. I want God to show up in the moments.
Some weeks it seems we have so much on our plate that we just go through the motions. Any moment of down time is filled with doing absolutely nothing, allowing our minds to just rest and be numbed by whatever show the remote lands on.
Knowing this year is going to be filled with more change, responsibility, and moments, I want it to all matter. I want to get out of the house more with Chris (and baby) and make the most of our weeknights and weekends. I want to dive back into God's Word (it's been too long) and soak up the Scripture. (Any suggestions on a good devotional?) I want to read books and see movies and have coffee dates with friends and playdates with other moms and their babies. I want to purposefully write for this blog and bring out my camera more often. In fact, I don't want to ever put my camera away. I even want rest to be intentional, filled with conversation on the back porch, away from the t.v. or computer.
I just want a year of purposeful living.
Do you have a word for 2013?
