This year I am open to the possibility of expanding my wealth of knowledge in paper crafting. I want to learn new techniques. I want to create some new ideas on my own. I want to try new things.
A new idea that I have learned about is the idea of having one word you live by for the year. This is the word that you focus on during the year. I was thinking about this "word". The first word that came to mind was faith. Faith is believing in things that you can not see. I feel that I do have faith and know how to have faith in life, so I didn't think that faith should be my "word". I then got to thinking about what I have been feeling with the new year and in my own life. I came to the conclusion that I have HOPE that things will work out for the greater good. I place my HOPE in Jesus for my salvation. I HOPE that good things will come to me in the coming year. I HOPE to have many new opportunities and adventures in the new year. I then went to the dictionary and looked up the word HOPE! Here is what I found:
1. the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.
2. a particular instance of this feeling
3. grounds for this feeling in a particular instance
4. a person or thing in which expectations are centered.
5. something that is hoped for
HOPE is my word for 2013.
I HOPE you will follow me on my journey!
