1. Oh I love this, Kathy! 2014 WAS a good and hard year! In the past, I would have said good and bad, but He has taught me that ‘bad’ and ‘hard’ are very different even though sometimes they feel very much the same! Can’t wait to read about your new OneWord for next year! It’s amazing how it sort of comes and finds us, isn’t it?

  2. What a beautiful post! I’m not sure I’m ready to reflect back on 2014 on my blog yet, but I so enjoyed your post. My two words for 2014 were ‘loss’ and ‘others’. Both proved to be prophetic in my life in 2014. My family experienced a huge loss of our precious Mother, and I personally experienced the loss of some close relationships. Praise God there is healing going on there. The ‘other’ was where God told me to focus on promoting others on my blog. I tried to be intentional in doing that, and found blessing along the way.

    I’ll be at #theloft on January 6th to share my 2015 word. Can’t wait.

      Loss and other. Sounds very similar to de-light. Or bittersweet. Or hard and good. And really Leah, every year and all of life consists of the process of breaking off (Or cutting) and growing, a splitting of cells to create new life. Breaking of bread, and giving two full loaves. The double portion.

      Oops on getting #TheLoft date wrong. It’s NEXT week. Ok. 🙂
      Happy New Year to you Leah!

  3. Good words Kathy, my word as of late has been “It’s a God Thing” I’ve been saying it ever since
    Dad passed. I couldn’t believe Angela gave me a book, ” It’s a God Thing” by Don Jacobson and K-Love

      He is always working in our midst, Emmanuel. It’s just that we miss Him so often. Give us eyes to see Lord! Your hand, you love, your kindness, your goodness in our lives!
      Love you!
