For the past few years, I’ve chosen a word to ponder for the next 365 days. Last year’s word was OPEN. It is amazing how many times the word influenced my choices. This year’s word is STEP, a good word to follow open, because it continues the action of moving forward. As a gardener, I enjoy the process of growth; a plant that does not grow is not alive.
Grow we must.
To move forward is imperative.
Please join me as I share a few highlights of what my word of the year: STEP, and my project of the year: 365 photos have produced, thus far.
… eggs to share with others
…making art and onions from stuff I used to throw away
…enjoying my oldest hobby
…developing our Facebook page
…combining new enterprises with the tried and true
…viewing life from the eyes of a 3yr old
…looking at things in new ways through the lens of a camera
…remembering to give credit to God for the MANY and varied blessings in my life
…boring and/or delighting my peeps with photos of eggs
…sneaking pics of Jim
…learning about some of the “old ways”
… like, making bone broth and preserving herbs
…decorating the chicken’s house
…catching rainbows with grandchildren, while making fond memories.
Last evening I told Jim that I don’t deserve to be having so much FUN…
It’s true, I don’t deserve anything — every perfect gift that comes to me from God is a blessing …not a reward.
What a JOY life is when taking steps with God, enjoying his creation…
… and playing with his children!
