3 graces you overheard:

On Ann Voskamp's journal today, she suggests choosing a word for the year.  Allowing God to focus you on one word, thought, concept and then watching how He forms that word in you.  Trying to think of my word....how to choose just one word.  Fullness.  That's my word.  

Col. 2:9  For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.

fullness
Noun
  1. The state of being filled to capacity.
  2. The state of having eaten enough or more than enough and feeling full.
Synonyms
plenitude - completeness

One of my new things this year, 2013 is to paticipate in the Joy Dares. So I'm already a day behind! 
Day 1:  3 gifts heard

1.  Dad and I taking Elisabeth out to lunch and a movie for her birthday, and as we are in line waiting to go into the movie, she says, "I feel like an only child."  
2.  The voice of an old friend from Tennessee.
3.  Revelation Song by Phillips, Craig and Dean
