Balance...my word for the year.
A few years ago I heard Mark Rutland preach a sermon around one word...he wrote a book on the word nevertheless. I was so impressed for a number of reasons. One, I had never really even used the word, two, his mother instilled in him the love of words and built up his vocabulary and three he wrote a whole book about the usage of the word. So I read his book and paid attention to that word for a year.
Last year I focused on the word PERSEPCTIVE...if you've read my book, Ethnic Scrapbooking you know why.
This year it is balance. Being an accountant, balance is a part of my everyday life. Usually you think of weights on a scale, or a state of being in equilibrium. I'm looking for it in my life for mental and emotional stability; sanity! I'll be focusing on how to bring more balance to my life and household in areas such as rest, scrapbooking, reading, food choices, blood sugar levels, extracurricular activities and etc.
