My Word of the Year for 2015 is Generosity #wordoftheyear

Pin It Now!   Some years I have to really think about what my word of the year is going to be and often struggle to make a definitive decision about my word. This year that changed. I was hit smack in the face with it from God.

 Sitting in church the week before Christmas the focus was on Generosity and gift giving. We were given a tag and asked to bless someone with something we already had and share the gift of generosity. My middles son Alyx and I both got a tag and we enjoyed "ding dong ditching" two friends and leaving a gift bag of goodies at their door. Some Veggie Tales, some music, a book or two and other little trinkets were given to someone who could appreciate them instead of collecting dust on our shelves.

The feeling of joy we felt in our hearts surprising others left me feeling I should do more. So late that night it hit me! My word for the new year is going to be Generosity. I want to share what I have with others and bless them!

   It really is combining two of the things I am focusing on into one. As I sit and clear my home of clutter, you know things I have gotten from reviews that may not have fit our family but could totally bless another or something that I won or got free that is simply sitting here collecting dust. I am putting them into rubbermaid totes and labeling it Generosity and as I go week by week blessing others I will use items from those bins. After I have gone through my supply then I will be using my craft talent that God gave me and making things for others all the way through next Christmas. One year of giving and who knows it may not stop there.

   I love making things and I love to give them to people who I know will appreciate them. I made this night light for Alyx and he was just tickled, it totally made my week .
