Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. For Yahweh is good, and His love is eternal; His faithfulness endures through all generations.
Psalm 100:4-5 (HCSB)

2014 – A Fresh Beginning

New Year Book QuoteA brand new year has begun.
A fresh beginning.

There are many ways to begin. Movements such as “One Word,” “One Scripture, “Infusion Words,” and goal setting are all over the internet. Which ones will help us be all we can in 2014? How to pick the right one for you?

I can’t answer that for you, however, I do know one thing is true: words are powerful. Words bring grace into our lives. Words can also bring sorrow. Words bring us joy.

With words we make promises, we make deals, we seal marriages and say goodbye to loved ones. Using words we create friendships and enemies. Words are meaningful. They are not just ink on a page or wasted breath. Words affect us.

So whatever method you choose – just begin. There is no right way. Choose what connects you to what you want in 2014. Choose what makes you come alive. Prayerfully give it consideration and then begin.

I have chosen to do several methods because that’s what works for me. I am beginning this new year with:

My One Word = Praise

My 2014 Scripture Focus = Habakkuk 3:18 MSG

I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God.”

I haven’t created all my goals yet for the year, but each one will be prayed over and connected to my focus for the year – Praise! I want to make sure that God is at the center of everything I do. Praising Him is a great way to begin!

Dream Cards – Backgrounds

Dream Card Backgrounds

I am involved in a course called Business Fusion Studio with Laura West. This month the module has us creating Dream Cards. The first step is creating backgrounds. I had so much fun I thought I would share them. Later I will be adding my dreams on top as another layer. I will post those when I finish them.

I met Laura West at a NAMS  (Novice to Advanced Marketing System) business training conference. She creates gorgeous murals from the keynote speaker sessions.  If you are interested in free weekly online business  training simply click on this link  http://bit.ly/16hTbJw to be notified of the trainings.
