For the past few years, there has been a project of sorts...among the scrapbooking/crafty/blogging world...called One Little Word, begun by Ali Edwards. You can read more about it here.

The application of One Little Word is a little bit different for every one who joins along. For me, the past few times I have chosen a word, it has been one that condenses some of my feelings and goals about the upcoming year. A word to remember and reflect upon. A few years ago, my word was purposeful.

This year it is faithful.

Faithful to my relationship with Christ.

Faithful to spend time in His Word.

Faithful to spend time in prayer.

Faithful in my relationships... a wife. a mother. a homeschooler. a daughter. a sister. a friend.

Faithful to my commitments.

This year in CBS, we've been studying the book of Genesis. We just finished studying the life of Abraham this past week. And one of the themes that has really left an impression on me is the theme of faithfulness. God's unswerving faithfulness to Abraham (and me). Abraham's great effort at being faithful to God. (He is such a good example of a man whose desire was to be faithful, even when his faith faltered at times. He didn't let that stop him from continuing to follow in obedience.)

This year, I hope to be faithful.

I mistyped my friend's blog and ended up at yours :). I really liked your post re: one word a year. How do you choose the theme/word? Beautiful thoughts.
