Robin, over on What Canst Thou Say? is my guru on this; for 2012, her guiding words are wisdom, serenity, courage, discipline. What beautiful guides.
For me, those words resonate deeply, but I'm choosing "faith, wisdom, serenity".
- Faith because I need to trust that in life and God. To quote Robin: This is to help me remember that I am enough. That we are enough. That God is enough. I believe, Lord, help thou my unbelief.
- Wisdom to know myself and to hear that inner voice more clearly, rather than giving in to the pressures of the moment.
- Serenity means practicing intentional slowness, decluttering my mind and surroundings so that distractions allow for inner peace, encouraging wisdom to emerge.
