Words can empower and uplift our spirits and transform our lives.
Words like Abundance, Balance, Discipline, Excellence, Faith, Joy......
With my beautiful blogging buddies Annemarie, Coach, Julie, and Roban we embarked on a journey back in January where we committed to simultaneously post at the end of each month a reflection on a WORD each of us had chosen for 2009.
What a blessing these women and their words have made to my life. I love the consistency and depth of our experience we share with each other. These posts helps us stay focused and highlights our journey these words are taking us on.
To reflect on our WORDS this month we decided to make a video or choose a youtube that relates to our word.
My word is BALANCE and I chose "The Moody Blues - Balance"
Annemarie's - word is DISCIPLINE and she made this poignant video.
Julie's- word is EXCELLENCE
"This is Kari Jobe, a really sweet girl who is dear friends with some of my dear friends. She has a gorgeous song out called I'm Singing and she had viewers add their experiences and included them in the video--and the result is just 'excellent'--really amazing people continuing to walk with joy, even in the midst of some tough times--"
Roban's- words are JOY and FAITH
"When I thought of a video to express some of my thoughts on faith and joy, I immediately thought of the artist Akiane Kramarik. Her art comes from her faith, and her paintings fill me with joy and awe".
Coach's - word is ABUNDANCE
Akeelah and the Bee - Deepest Fear
Special thanks to Caroline at The Zen in You for inspiring us to take this journey.
