Word for 2014
Simplify Your Life
Originally uploaded by Robert Benner Sr.
Like a lot of you, I chose a word to guide me in 2014, the word "simplify". It is connected for me with the word "de-clutter." Yes, I have too much stuff. Where does it come from and how does it multiply?
In previous years I chose "shine" and "listen."
Some words you, my blog friends have chosen this year:
Renew, refresh, refocus
One friend has two words: purge and organize
These make a nice word quilt or poem when listed together.
Abby at Abbey's Paperie Garden chose Simplify too, and she designed a wonderful lacy paper scroll to hold her word. You can see it at Abby's Paperie Garden
I want to organize my extensive papers and throw out a lot of them. I have boxes and file cabinets of papers so that is my aim, plus give away and throw out unused clothes and other items.
I think Simplify is in line with Scripture, including:
"Keep your lives free of the love of money and be content with what you have." Hebrews 13:5
