For Fun…a Year in 150 Words

Just for fun, I tried to cram the last 361 days into 150 words…

Cold midwest winter
New friends at VWRT St. Louis
Meet again at VWRT Nashville
March 4th
Amos 5:21 from a stranger
Meant wrestling with God

2nd visit to Nashville
April 22nd
God says go
Risk
Peace
Could Nashville be home?
Letting go

Goodbye to The CORE
Memphis in July – hello humidity!
Hope – go to give but end up receiving it
Echo Conference reunion
Take the online offline
Selling, giving, throwing
Risk…again
Pack life into my car
Move to Nashville
August 28th
3rd trip in 6 months
This time to stay

Beginning a new volume
Not just a new chapter
Dropped into community
A home at Journey
Living
Being
Healing
Doubt
STORY Chicago
Hope

Transition
New friends
Relationships
God brings it full circle
Theory to practice
Talking to doing

Doubt…again
Fighting
Persevering
Risk…yet again
Trusting
He’s faithful
He’s got this
Embracing the unexpected
I’m home
…for now

If you haven’t figured it out, I love words…I love describing things in few words. So, it’s natural that I would love an idea I came across from Alece on her blog Grit & Glory…one word for 2011. Looking back I think it’s safe to say that my word for 2010 turned out to be “risk” although that’s certainly not one I would have chosen or predicted at the beginning of the year. I’ve been thinking about my word for 2011 since reading Alece’s post and I’ll write about it when I discover it :)

What kind of words would you use to sum up your year?
