So, apparently, it is the latest trend to have a WORD for the new year. A word that will state your goals, your priorities, your intentions, your theme. A WORD that you hope will define your year. I noticed this trend for the first time last year, thanks to Twitter. I thought it was a relatively dumb idea, but, to each his own.
While I am still not sold on the WORD idea, I did find an idea that was worthwhile. Sarah Mae made her husband's name her WORD for 2014. Some of her readers liked the idea and adopted it. Now, there is a small group making their husbands their WORD. That, I like.
In 2013, as I struggled in several areas, ERIC became less of a priority. In my brokenness a few weeks ago, I realized that I needed to fight for my marriage. I needed to appreciate ERIC, love him, care for him, and not take him for granted.
In the midst of this time and God speaking to me in personal ways, I came across Sarah Mae's indirect challenge. Make my husband my WORD. My priority. My focus. My theme of 2014.
ERIC. My man. My love. My word.
