I'm participating in a Book of Me challenge on Scrapbook.com.
I've been wanting to do a BOM for a long time, and have lots of years prior to 2014 that I will have to fill in, but I wanted to start this year right, by staying on track with BOM entries.
As my husband and I have been evaluating our past, and seeking God for direction for our future, I began asking the Lord for a word that I should focus my attention on for this year. At first, I was really just desiring it, not whole heartedly seeking God for it.
Then I read a post on my friend Kelly's blog at Sandcastle Stamper. I was thrilled to see that she had the same desire, and already had her word for the year. With a yearning to have a focus, grounding point, and something for which I could be accountable to myself, my husband and my Master, I sat right there at my desk and sincerely asked, "God, what's my word for this year?",
Within seconds I had my answer:
The first layout in my BOM for 2014.
