What’s your word – January

This is the first January that I have not tried to do all sorts of prompts or decorate pages about my word. It seems fitting. In order to invite REST into my life, I needed to step back from the making and sink into this word. And it has been amazing! At least once a week I have found an email or text that references rest.

This one arrived last week, just days after two of my friends entered a season of grief and loss, when the winter crud was zapping our staff, and on a day when my knee was aching from trying to do too much.

So I rested. I sat on the couch with my knitting and my leg elevated. I wrote notes of sympathy and encouragement. I slowed down. It was good.

I have some plans for exploring this word in new ways next month but I am also looking forward to seeing how it shows up.

Now it’s your turn. How have you and your word been getting along?
