Do you have a word for the year?

A word for the year? Sometime ago when asked, I was quite surprised! I’d not ever heard of a “word for the year” ( though unknown to me at the time there have been many books written on the topic). However, over many years, beginning usually in late Summer or Fall, there would often be a reoccurring word or phrase, that would enter my thoughts surfacing again and again when in prayer, dreaming and/or quiet time. Was this my word for the year? I didn’t know, but I began to take it seriously and accepted it gladly as a direction. It wasn’t long before I realized there was an undeniable connection between the word/phrase and what I needed to focus on for the year. One year it was “intention”, another,“Hear”, many years ago the phrase “Alone with Me”. For 2020 it was “Health!” (Imagine my shock when that year unfolded!!) But for 2021 it was both the phrase “Stay in your Lane” and the word “Move!” Who could have guessed how many dreams and hopes would and could have been fulfilled in this last year? Most of them I had tucked away in my heart for decades!!! I truly believe, that if I had not focused and acted on the word and phrase that repeatedly surfaced for 2021 much of what became a reality would still be a dream.

To date I still don’t know how this photo was taken… It was the Monday after our Daughter’s wedding here at our home, the Henington House, and everything and everyone was hustling and bustling to get

Karen, don’t you find that there is such peace in knowing somewhat the direction? It tends to eliminate the fear of the unknown and lean it more toward an adventure!! It will still be difficult at times, but on the whole, I have no doubt that you will find JOY within the “moving on” ❤️

Mine, I already know! It’s, “moving on,” Richard and I have decided to sell our home we built 38 yr ago, cleared the land, raised our sons in, the only home our granddaughters spent the past 21 yrs at for every Easter, and Mother’s Day, Camp MiMi, learning to swim, brought all their friends for sleepovers and Emily’s first birthday party. So many friends and family have passed through our doors so many memories ❤️ But, it’s time for “moving on” With Richards health and 1.5 acres to take care of and I love a manicured yard and our inground pool that I will miss. Last week we took the first step to “moving on.” We put a deposit on a place…
