: word of the year :: 2012 :

flour·ish (flûrsh, flr-)
v. flour·ished, flour·ish·ing, flour·ish·es

1. To grow well or luxuriantly; thrive
2. To do or fare well; prosper
3. To be in a period of highest productivity, excellence, or influence

I don't know about you but you and your word for the year, but when God laid it on my heart that mine would be "Flourish" it was pretty exciting. I do want to flourish, I want my life to be in constant place of "high productivity, excellence & influence" ~ What an exciting feeling!

When I think about my past "word of the year"2011 -- I know that it was building up to this one and that feels really good too!

Last year's word was "Change" and change I {we} did - it was painful, long and very little of it was enjoyable; the change I mean...the year was enjoyable but you do the best with what you have and we continued to trust that God's best was in store for us through it all...and we are always shown that His best does reign in our lives.

Anyway, so there you have it...if you care to share your "word of the year" leave a comment with a link to your blog; I'd love to hear about it!

May God give you a word to hold on to in the craziness of this life and in the stillness of the moments we have with Him.

Happy Weekend Y'all - I'm off to a "Girls Night Out" tonight and a full weekend ahead!

I don't usually do a "word" for the year, but it seems the Lord laid one on my heart without searching for it this year. KNOW. As in, Be Still and KNOW that I am God. As well Ephesians 3:16-20 to KNOW this love that surpasses knowledge - to grasp how wide, how long, how high and how deep is this love of Christ.
