I have hardly been online or at the computer for over two months now. I really need to plan more frequent sabaticals so I don't get so burnt out... So much has happened in our country and the world, it's been hard to process. Many people have died over the past year. Earthquakes, volcanoes, economic collapse & terrorism have become daily news. We heard of unexplained mass animal deaths almost weekly. This election was horrific. Words cannot express the lack of integrity and even total lack of humanity rampit in high places. Do people really no longer have any honor, morality or self-control left? It has truly been so sickening that I had to step back away from it all.
Last year my "Word for the Year" was PREPARE. While things did NOT go as I had anticipated, I do feel much more prepared this year. Prepared for what? you might ask... It may sound fillipant but I feel prepared for almost anything right now. I am filled with a comfort beyond understanding and I know in my heart that anything the LORD allows in our lives this next year, HE will be with us and help us through.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
So, my "Word for the Year" in 2017 is INTREPID. (Tenacious, Adventurous, Courageous, Audacious, Daring, Determined, Bold, Dauntless, Fearless, Fiery, Resolute, Spirited, Spunky, Steadfast, Persevering, Persistent, Purposeful, Enduring, Loyal, Vigilant) I'm meeting this new year with bold determination! ...Well... maybe after I move out of hybernation mods... LOL
