Foto Friday #14: My One Word

We close the book on another year tonight and tomorrow we open a new journal, full of blank pages and hope. I love the promise and hope that comes with these days, but more and more I realize that each day holds this hope…each hour in fact. I believe strongly in written goals and know that pursuing them with intention makes me a better woman even when I fall short of achieving them. Maybe you have a list of resolutions, maybe you think they are silly. I think I am somewhere in between. I see the value in focusing our energy toward the goal, but not in thinking we can only start something January 1st.

For the last couple of years, I have seen friends and other bloggers mentioning their One Word. God began putting this on my heart throughout the fall season, although I could not put it into words. I think you might be surprised to learn my One Word for 2011 is FRUIT.


Not eating fruit, but living a life that exhibits the Fruit of the Spirit more fully.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23

Do you have New Year’s resolutions? Do you think they are pointless? If you had to choose one word for the year coming to a close, 2010, what would it be?
