2013 One Little Word - "Connect"
I struggle with a disability that makes it easy for me to isolate myself. So this year I have decided that this too needs to change, one stepping stone at a time. I've heard it said many times "that a man cannot be an island unto himself" and I find that quote to be so true. We do need each other, to love, live, laugh and so much more.
For starters I've met a lovely bunch of gals that love to scrapbook and we've decided that our SB Group name should be called "CIA" (Crafters In Action). Because I'm such a mystery nut. . . this title is perfect and adds a hint of mystery. . .
Scrapbooking has been a real passion of mine. It allows me to work with my hands and I am always amazed as my imagination wanders and the creativity begins and new projects are formed. There are so many amazing colours, designs and textures of paper that are totally irresistible and just fuel the imagination.
I also want to connect more with GOD and strengthen my relationship with HIM - I know He is always there waiting for me with open arms and that there is absolutely nothing that can every separate me from His love. . . but I find myself wanting more!
Part of that is learning to connect with myself and my needs, learning to value who I am as a creation of GOD. This too needs to be a real priority in my life so I can spend the rest of my days in fullness, joy and peace!
Well this is just the beginning of a New Year; who said you couldn't start in March? and I am looking forward to new beginnings, fullness, joy, peace and restoration.
Blessings to you all and I hope your 2013 is all that you expected and more!
