revisiting my word of the year

At some point yesterday, when one of my littles was having a rough moment, I thought of many things that Chad and I want to plan out and do to be intentional parents. I thought of the word intention, which was my word of the year last year. I felt like last year we made big efforts to be intentional parents! Hopefully we can do that every year, but it got me thinking about my word of this year. My word is focus. You can go back and read about it here. I did, today, because funny enough, my morning devotional was about being focused on the Lord. Let me just share this excerpt from Jesus Calling. . .

"Make me your focal point as you move through this day. Just as a spinning ballerina must keep returning her eyes to a given point to maintain her balance, so you must keep returning your focus to Me. Circumstances are in flux, and the world seems to be whirling around you. The only way to keep your balance is to fix your eyes on Me, the One who never changes."

Ahhh yes! Praise the Lord for His consistency and constant presence in our lives! I find it so interesting that I chose focus for my word this year. We knew and still know only a glimpse of our year ahead, but we know more about our year (our baby-to-be having Down syndrome, a new house to fix up and move in to) than we did when I first wrote my word of the year post. The Lord, though, knew all along. He knew I would be spinning like a ballerina and would need to remind me to make Him my focal point! How thankful I am that everyday, especially on those whirlwind days, I can retreat, and breathe Him in and regain my focus. I hope you can too!
