MY WORD!

It sorta just came to me last night.
I was thinking about the thing I needed most
at this time in my life.



The top of the list would be a greater capacity for:

Understanding
Patience
Unconditional love
Service
Peace
Knowing when I've done all I can, then leave the rest up to the Lord.
Forgiving
Pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

And for my New Year's Resolution:
Put myself on the top of the "take care of" list.

Maple Lane said...

What a great choice; love it!

Have a wonderful day.

" Hit It......." said...

Dang...I want that "word." I think I need capacity too. Love it!

just call me jo said...

Who'd a thunk of that one? Great word, lady. I love the Idaho license plate too. I need a word, but it fails me. I'll just ride on your shirt tails.

Jenny P. said...

This is a fabulous word. Mine is patience, I think, but specifically, patience with myself. One must not try and do it all, all at the same time. Or so I tell myself daily.

Momza said...

I've used that word before, as in, "My willingness exceeds my capacity."
LOL Super duper word, Tauna! LIVE IT!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Great word! Aint it just crazy how long it takes to come up with a stinkin' word.

I'm sad that you are looking forward to hard things.

HUGS!

I hope I get to see you again soon.

Brad said...

That is a word I would have NEVER thought of. Love it. Great choice, and I love how you pointed out part of capacity was knowing when to turn it over to the Lord.

jen said...

That last comment was from me, sorry.

Yvonne said...

WHAT A GREAT WORD. Love it. I really love the "knowing when I've done all I can and leave the rest up to the Lord"--I'm not always willing to let go and trust ; (


I'm still thinking of my word.

I knew you were a genius.

I will be changing that
bought me 3 new exercise videos while in Utah...um, haven't checked them out yet. (stupid me)

I love that list!! I also love the word "Capacity", because I think we are all able to fill our lives clear to the brim with those things that we love! Great thoughts for me to ponder on!

Hugs,

Love it. Just don't pray for patience though, because then you'll be called to Primary Prez. I should know.

Great word! And get yourself at the top of that list. Everything else will fall into place.

Great word! I hadn't thought about that one before. I'd love to have a greater capacity for the things you listed, especially patience and leaving the rest up to the Lord.

I love your list and maybe I should do the same. Thanks... Hugs. JB

Mikki said...

Great word! And I love your resolution.

Kerin said...

Wonderful choice.

I love that you are striving to put yourself on the 'take care of' list.
I think all moms need to do that...and it is so hard.

Hope that you are at the top of the list today :)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Love your thoughts, especially about doing all you can, then leaving it to the Lord. I need to remember that! I will pray that the tough things on the horizon will turn into blessings for you, friend.

I've been reading some really awesome "word of the year" posts too. I just haven't sat down and thought about it enough to come up with one yet.

Kimmie said...

This is SO inspiring!! Especially about putting yourself on TOP of the "take care of list"!

I printed this out as I need all of these for myself this year!! CAPACITY...such a great word!

It looks like winter has finally come....it's SNOWING (at least for the moment). Hope you are having a GREAT 2012 so far!
