ONE little Word Challenge

I am participating in Ali Edwards' One little word Challenge

My word for this year is LIVE -This year I want to REALLY LIVE for Christ and for my FAMILY and even for ME some too!

I am going to try to focus on all of my BLESSINGS -and I am going to LIVE everyday without regret or worry - or the "what if's" the "shoulda's" and even the "if only's" - This year I want to get closer to the person GOD has planned - for me to be -- this year I am going to LIVE

here is a quote I borrowed from Steph's blog -you can see her lovely art work here

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievement of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you. "

Shawnna, I love your "not a new year's resolution" to LIVE. That is awesome. Sounds so much like what I'm striving for. To actually start becoming the woman God made me to be. Start living in the here and now, TODAY! Not yesterday or next month. Thanks for putting it into words. Stacey/mom2mgec
