My one word for 2012

For a few years now I have heard of this "one word" thing buzzing around the internet. I always say I am going to do this..and being who I am..I never get around to picking my word. This year I prayed to God to give me the word that would help me most this year. 
While sitting in church a few sundays ago, I heard a few words that i thought would be great for me.

Prayer, Revival, obey, love, kindness, praise, give, the list goes on and on.
BUT I only need one word on that I can really focus on!
Then one night reading the bible the Lord spoke to me very very clear!
You  have good intentions with everything you "think" to do..You have such a clear passion in the beginning.
But you have always been a PROCRASTINATOR!
The WORD that the Lord was giving me was very clear
I have to be DILIGENT in everything the Lord gives me to do. I have missed many blessing and opportunities to help others and share the LOVE of Jesus because I wasnt being DILIGENT.
I need to be DILIGENT in all areas of my life! 

Will you join me and many others and choose your ONE WORD?   
Want to find out more, you can go here MY ONE WORD

Come back, let me know what your ONE WORD is. Lets make 2012 about doing what the LORD really wants us to do!

My sister Danielle..wonderful Mom!!
 My son's Girlfriend Hannah...She is a smart beautiful young woman..
and our latest blessing..Ayva our Grand-daughter. Its been a LONG road to see this little one..but as always with GOD, the road has many lessons along the way and always ends up right where it should be. 
Little blonde pig tails :}
It is such a blessing to have children...and when you see your children...interacting with their children..the whole world comes full circle..and the LOVE is amazing. 

I am SO Thankful to the Lord above for my time on Christmas with all the blessings he has given to me. I thank him daily through prayer and song. The Lord is my everything, without Him..I would have no blessings.

My win from Moss HIll Studio

A while back and I mean a while..I posted a comment on Joannas blog over at Moss Hill Studio
I won my choice of things from Joanna. I chose for her to make me one of her Fairy Girls.
Joannas blog was the first blog I ever start following before I started a blog. You know back when we use to just bookmark things.
Joanna is a very talented and inspirational artist. With every post, you can tell she put her heart and soul into it.
I got to know Joanna  through her blog...her art somehow lifted me up and gave me hope that one day I too could take a leap of FAITH and venture out into the world with my crafts.
Joanna is a wonderful child of God. Blessed by His hands to create with her heart.
This fairy now hangs on my tree..and soon she will go into my room on my shelf.
Joanna Thank you very much for the wonderful fairy! She is so precious and wonderful to me.
Joanna didnt know my favorite number was 8 when she created this for me, but God knew. 
vintage laces and fabrics make up this beauty. She has the word FAITH on her. That is this little fairys name now. Joanna didn't know but I have had to walk with great FAITH the past year in my life. God knew I needed that word on this little fairy. 
Here she adorable! all tattered and vintage.This little fairy has a loving home.
Thank you Joanna! God bless you!
