One Word Challenge


My friend Pastor Tara Sloan issued a challenge this past week on her blog based upon an idea she found about selecting "one word" as your personal theme for the year.

The original creator of the One Word Challenge, Ali Edwards, says the following: "A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought or a feeling or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother's word or your spouse's word or your child's word - this is YOUR word. One little word can have big meaning in your life if you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities. And here's one thing that is totally interesting: sometimes a word will pop into your brain and it will not make any sense to you right now. Give it some time. Let it percolate a bit. I have often found that our hearts speak to us in very unique ways. Maybe this is a word you need to hear but just aren't ready for it yet. Again, be open to the possibilities."

You can special order a necklace that displays whatever your special word is, here. Although I have found by googling the word jewelry and many words, you can find all kinds of jewelry that have various words on them at great prices. In fact, I found my word.

I have finally selected my word of the year, but...I'm not telling what it is, til...tomorrow.
