These are a few of my favorite “life” words, if you will. I really don’t know if I used that “if you will” phrase correctly, but I liked it! :)
Create: We were created by a creative God. One whose imagination and creativity amazes us all. Whether its looking at the huge Grand Tetons in Yellowstone or a single drop of rain on a flower petal, we can see creativity. In us all, I believe, is some form of creativity. It might be cooking, painting, sewing, organizing, speaking, writing, or even mud drawings (compliments of Caleb with that last one). I love to create. Something about it-fuels me. I have to think it’s because my heavenly father is so creative.
Love: Jesus’ love is the perfect demonstration of love. He is love. Love conquers all. You can’t mess up in life by loving too much or too hard. If we are going to ere in life…let it be by loving too much. Love is sometimes not the easiest thing to do. It can be hard and hurtful. We have the chance and risk of being hurt when we invest in someone and love them…but that is the more plentiful and rewarding life in giving yourself away to love. I pray that I do that well and teach my kids how to do that well with all they come in contact with!
Simplify: There is so much “noise” in this world. I get sucked into drama, tv shows, clothes, fashion, house hold stuff. Not that any of it is necessarily bad, but I don’t want it to consume my head and so my heart. I want to be about giving stuff away, and to be about the bigger picture of life.
I hope you all have had a good Monday! Take a few minutes to think about some of your favorite words and what makes them so special!
