I have an outdoor sign at work that I can display a short sentence on (if I ever have anything to say.) In December it came to me to put up 'Rediscover the Christ of Christmas'. As time went on I felt that rediscover may be my word for 2014. The two weeks surrounding the holidays found me doing a lot of things that I used to do like sewing and baking and decorating which also meant my computer time had been cut way back. In fact I know one day I was not on it at all and really didn't miss it. I've also been very aware of how it's done two things. It's robbed me of life and in another way given me life. There must be some sort of fine line of balance in there somewhere. I'm not just talking social media but my time spent creating on it. There is a real battle with the old me and the new me. The old me can't totally die, it's a part of the new me. But the new me is spread so thin that the cup is nearly empty.
On Jan 1st I was beginning to be washy washy about that word. "It doesn't sound that great blah, blah, blah." Then I read a blog of a friend. Yes, I hear ya, that will probably be my word.
Fast forward to today. My hubby can get on a soapbox with the best of them and this was one of those mornings. He finally turned it around to our lives and how we've been sucked into the world with having our heads buried in our electronics and becoming so self focused. At one point 'that word' popped back into my head and when I started to tell him about it I immediately started crying. If that's not confirmation I don't know what is. So my word for 2014 is Rediscover. It just may be 'our' word.
