My word for 2014 is Excitement

Monday, January 06, 2014

My word for 2014 is Excitement. As part of a 'follow the star' Epiphany service at my church we were invited to pick a star with a word on it out of a basket--no peeking and no exchanging. The challenge was to post the star where it will be seen daily and to think about and pray about that word and what it means to us.

Sometimes I feel that other people have all the excitement and I'm envious. When my husband was alive we traveled alot in our RV. After his death I sold the RV and went back to work. That's not nearly as exciting as traveling. Will I find a way to have an exciting life again?

Getting to my goal weight would be exciting. This past year I lost 70 pounds. I have 40 more to reach my weight loss goal. My goal is to achieve that weight in 2014.

I'm not sure what 'excitement' God has planned for me this year. I guess I better get in shape, and be ready!

    What a wonderful word! Love your attitude -- ready and waiting.
    I choose words of the year, too (or is it really the other way around?) Mine is engage. In reading your blog, I realize excitement can be an element of that.

    Excitement is a great word! Lucky you that you picked that one! Now that you are looking for it I'm sure you will find it everywhere and in unexpected places! P S I don't really believe in luck - it was Providence.

    Congrats on the weight lost first of all. I know you can lose the rest too! I too am envious of other's excitement sometimes but we must keep our eyes open for a chance to make our own!

    Walking with God can be exciting - I wonder what he has in store for you this year. Often excitement comes in the the most unexpected ways. You have done amazingly with your weight - I'm sure you will reach your goal this year. emoticon
