I did pretty well with the word for 2012: Connection. I made an effort to be more sociable without denying my introverted self. Hopefully I was able to communicate that, although I am by nature an introvert, I DO care. This extroverted society makes it a challenge, that's for sure!
I think my word for 2013 will be Perspective. I think it's important to remember what REALLY matters: "mere" Christianity in all its perfection.It's really all about Jesus and everything else falls under Him. If I remember that, then the frustrations and challenges and triumphs of my days will take care of themselves. That will be real freedom.
