All I Need is One Word and Other Stuff

I can’t believe that we are already six days into the new year. We are and I’m happy about it. What have you been up to?

As for me, I have a beautiful Erin Condren planner to fill up with blogging topics, books to be read, novels and novellas to be written, art journal prompts to tackle, and Zentangle artworks to leave for random people to find. I have asked three of my friends to help me leave the pieces in random places in another state. The thought of someone finding my artwork and smiling makes me smile.

I did go through with my locking session. It two days, but I LOVE IT! I couldn’t ask for a better gift.

My husband thinks I’m crazy, because I have been snapping selfies like crazy. I’m not a picture person at all. I just love my new do.

I have decided to do something I have been wanting to do, but never have…art journaling. I’m not the greatest artist, but I feel like I can do a little something with different medias. I came across Journal52 a couples weeks before the new year. I said I had to try it. Read up on it and see if you want to join the other 9.5K+ people. The first week’s prompt was pathways. This is what came to my mind.

Now for the topic of my post. I don’t do resolutions, but I did find focusing on one word through the entire year is doable for me. Last year was a real humdinger for me. To many sad moments to think about. Just know it was enough to rock my faith in God. As I prepared for the new year, I asked God to reveal to me the one word I should live by and at first I thought it was compassion. However, God told me I have that. What he wanted me to do was to rejoice His name through the good times and the humdingers.

My one word is:

My hubby used one of my completed Zentangle tiles to fill the letters and the background. I have this to look at for one year. I love it.

Do have a resolution or one word you’re focusing on? Share it with me.

Btw, I am currently reading Death Before Daylight by Shannon A. Thompson. It’s the final installment in her Timely Death series. Boy am I going to miss these characters.

 

Until next time, I’m rejoicing and I hope you are, too.
