How is it that I'm the first one to comment? I wait for this post ALL year!

FLOW, huh?

I have been thinking of you all week. My word is--don't laugh--WORD.(Kind of makes me think of the 80s. Word up?)

Word in a John 1 kind of way.

God either means what he says or we are all deluded.

This year I will take God at His word and only use my words for eternal purposes.

(Zoe was just reading this and says to tell you "hi")

So, yeah, that's where I am. But not where I will be 12/31/2011.


Flow. You don't know how much that word and the Scriptures are ministering to me right now. I have felt stuck for a long time, and I need to let God make me a road in the wildnerness.

I have two words for 2011. LOVE and LAUGH. My Bible Study for 2011 will begin and end on these principles. Ones I want for my family, my job, and my life.



Here's what I wrote on my blog entry:

guess I could have been in a club or in somebody’s family room with a drink in my hand and a party horn in my mouth, but here I sit at my computer doing what I hope to be doing the rest of this year. Creating. This ain’t nothing deep but it comes from my head and my heart. I have a book to finish that hasn’t had the attention it deserves and I want to correct that in 2011.

In the beginning of last year I reclaimed happiness and it was a good thing, but by early December I couldn’t wait for the year to be over. Now, as I hear gun shots and fireworks in the distance, I’m going to go into this year with the determination and hope that it has to be better.

Every year I choose a word for the upcoming 12 months that I hope to incorporate into my life (thanks to my blog friend Marilynn Griffith who started this a few years ago). In the past I have chosen words such as discipline and determination, and this year’s word is in the same vein : ORDER. I think my path to success will result from having a more ordered life.

So, while my silly neighbors scream out drunkenly and do donuts in the middle of the street (oh dang they just hit somebody’s car), I create and hope for an ordered and joyous new year.

* See girl, we all be waiting for that word :)

Beautiful, Marilynn (not that you need my approval.) If there's going to be life, there's got to be blood. I'm not saying anything you don't already know. It's good to "hear" you again, and I hope and pray that your family will have a fulfilling 2011 with more flows than bumps.

I think my own word is going to be: BOUNDARIES. Even after decades of living, I'm still working on establishing them--figuring out what boundaries God wants me to have. I'm not sure how that will work out, but I'm SO not afraid.

God bless you!


I thought about you last week when I tried to come up with my word. I wondered what yours would be. I thank you for this because it makes us think about our life and what we want.

I thought my word would be organized, but I think I'm going to steal Tammee's word - ORDER

LaShaunda needs order in her life, the house, the fiances, the writing. I'm praying 2011 I will find ORDER and get back on track.

Looking forward to reading what flows unto your pages.

Love you my friend.

My word for this year is MOVE. I've spent the last through years dreaming of awesome ideas. Knowing the next step, but worrying beyond action. So in 2011 I will pray, listen...then move.

Faith without works is dead.
