Can I be honest? (nodding head)
I really thought this whole 'word for 2009' thing was kinda, well, dumb.


But...I thought about it...I did.


I think I found my word...and yes, it's RELAX. Ah, what a refreshing word, isn't it? Relax. Bubble baths, reading a book, cuddling, drinking hot cocoa while watching the snow fall.

Those things are relaxing, but I already do those things and I'm still not relaxed.

Relax is like 'peace'. What is peace though, really? I heard it described by Joyce Meyer once in the best's not a beautiful waterfall on a sunny day. It's the bird sitting on the branch right next to the gushing water of the waterfall. True peace and relaxation is something you choose while you are in the storm.

I can think of a number of scriptures that talk about peace, God's kind of peace. Maybe I should be picking the word 'peace'. Ha!

What 'relax' means for me is enjoying my life while there's a pile of dirty dishes in the sink, clothes to fold, a website not letting me make a purchase for some weird, unknown reason. 'Relax' will be me when I feel like everything in my life should be perfect, but it's not. That's what I want. I want to ENJOY my life and ENJOY who I am, no matter what's going on around me. That's John 10:10. I want to live my life in abundant joy! And I want to relax!
