{Anticipation}

{Anticipation} - That's always a good word to me, and appropriate for this time of year. Christmas is upon us and the new year will come screeching in sooner than we can push away from the table of all the goodies we'll be consuming. (I know I'm not alone. ;)

I have some goals on my list I'll be carrying over to 2010. But having made good progress on them they are becoming clearer and closer than ever to being acheived. I get excited about that! New goals for the new year are being put on paper. I'm not always great with words. I'm such a visual person that my mind's eye sees things in pictures and sometimes forming those images to into words doesn't translate as well as I'd like. I'm getting better but this is a goal on my list. 

Last year, the day after Christmas, I was writing. On the blog. And I was really impressed that Ephesians 3:20 should be my scripture for the year. I always like a word of some sort to kind of define my year. Or at least define my intentions and focus for the year. If you don't know Ephesians 3:20 by heart this is what is says - Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. I can't seem to let go of that as we move into the new year. My heart is still gripped by it. But still each new year comes with new expectations, goals and motivation. So much of what I am doing is building new things in my life so this scripture will remain as a big part of my direction for the new year but will be added to.

At the beginning of the month, Dec 1 to be exact, I wrote a post titled Be Audacious. This will be added to my word for 2010. My focus.

Audacious: adj. - extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; lively; unrestrained; uninhibited.

Can you live audasiously? Would you even want to? I wonder if this is a season for me or maybe it's something I am just now learning and will live this way for the rest of my life.


I feel so energized by the possibilities that run through my mind, again, I struggle to put my thoughts into words. Most likely they will be interpreted into new art as the year unfolds, as well as, being realized in the actual. I always love to see what my visions/ideas look like in the actual. That translation is always so cool to me. Whether in art or in life. What I tought it would look like, the process that it takes when it manifests and then to see what it looks/feels like in the actual. Rarely is it the way you imagined it. I find it's usually much greater than my own thoughts, which brings us back to Eph. 3:20 - immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine...

Hmmm...I think that would make a great button for my blog. Maybe we could start a blogging movement to Live Audaciously.
