Let it go...

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

I get a word every year that is my theme for that year. I became aware of it about 10 years ago.

Sometimes I get it early, in November and sometimes into the new year. These phrases or word become a life lesson for me. Quite often they become an encouragement I am able to pass on to others. I love that!

Wish I would have written them down over time, but I did not. Maybe this year, I'll start journaling again?

Anyway, last year was "let it go". That song was everywhere, wasn't it? Then I noticed that I would hear that song in my head every time I was getting wrought up about stuff.

It helped me to grab on to the peace that God was offering me. I began to think about what was robbing me of my peace and joy. Was it worth holding onto to the detriment of my health and sanity and peace? I think I will carry that lesson with me for a long time.

This year, it is love. It will be interesting to see how it goes...

Does this happen to you?

Merry Christmas and Blessings for the New Year. Here's to our best health... emoticon

    Sandra, that hasn't happened to me in a sense that I recognized it, but I HAVE had quotes latch on to my brain and hang around. You know two of them: Never, never, NEVER give up." Winston Churchill and "Its hard to beat a person who never gives up." Babe Ruth.

    But more recently I was given this bible verse: "Be still and know that I am God" and when I have trouble sleeping at night, I find if I CAN be still I will float right off into a restful sleep. So perhaps it is kind of the same thing? I do the same thing with the 23rd Psalm and the serenity prayer - the key is to STOP all the thoughts racing around in my head and turn everything over to God.

    I'll be interested to hear how your year of love turns out!! emoticon Merry Christmas and a BLESSED New Year!!
