One Word Update

When this year began, I had no idea what it would hold. The challenges have been harder than I ever imagined, and the joys have been more beautiful than I ever expected.

In January, I chose a word on which to focus this year: healthy.

As I re-read my One Word post, I realized my focus has wandered. But I can't say that's a bad thing because my focus has been primarily on fulfilling the dream and desire God placed inside me. I just wish I'd done a better job incorporating health into the busyness of the last five months.

With four months remaining in the year, I'm refocusing on getting healthy. I'm hoping my leg has healed enough to be able to run again soon. I'm still trying to figure out how to leave the past in the past {much easier said than done}. And I'm reminding myself that I was created to give God glory.

When December 31 arrives, I don't want to be full of regrets. That's not to say I won't have any, but I want to make decisions that will result in fewer than if I'd not been mindful of them.

The past eight months have been beautiful, messy, challenging and fulfilling. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next four hold!



  1. Isn't it interesting that although your word was healthy and you had to rest on a 'wounded' leg your spirit perhaps was getting more healthy? it is not often our thoughts or ways that heal us. God is working within the deep places. Be grateful.

    1. God is definitely working in the deep places. While I feel it, I don't understand it. And I'm impatient to see the good from it.
