2014 One Little Word

I have chosen "purpose" as my word for 2014. Twenty thirteen was a very hard, rollercoaster of emotions year and I am ready to put it behind and looking forward to what 2014 brings.


1. the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
2. an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
3. determination; resoluteness.
4. the subject in hand; the point at issue.
5. practical result, effect, or advantage: to act to good purpose.
In the Bible in Ecclesiastes 3:1 it says "For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven..."

This past summer and fall have been hard on me learning to deal with empty nesting, figuring out who I am and what and where I want to go with my life. "PURPOSE" is a good word for me this year.

I want to find a purpose in my life personally, mentally, physically, spiritually, etc. I also turn 50 this year and am making a bucket list of 50 things I want to do, learn, see, be, etc before I turn 50. So 50 things by July 6!

I will be sharing some of these things on my blog along the way. Might even share them all...we'll see. Ü

I want to do some things different with my blog. I joined in often with Tammy's Pinned It Made It Monday and want that to be a permanent fixture this year. I ♥ Pinterest and am so inspired by it, that I will try to post every Monday something I have pinned and made and/or been encouraged/inspired by.

Another blog I read posts a Frugal Friday and I want to incorporate that into my blog as well. With me not working full time now, I try to find more ways to be frugal and want to share those with you. I don't know if this will be an every Friday event or maybe every other. I always love a bargain and love finding ways I can save our family money without it feeling like we are going without anything.

I will also be sharing more than paper crafting here this year. I love working with yarn, fabric, etc. and have been doing more of that, so will be sharing that as well.


  1. i'll say that is a good and blessing to you lady...hugs

  2. Happy New Year my friend! I will look forward to seeing where this year takes you! :)

  3. Great word you have chosen. I think sometimes we all wonder what our purpose is. You have made me step back and take a look at that word for my own life. Looking forward to see where it leads you. Best to you, Debbie.
