Today has been an extremely lazy day for me. Jacob was at his dad’s house for the weekend and the only thing I did was go to the grocery store. Since I had the opportunity to just sit around I caught up on my blog reading. The one thing I have noticed is that many people are posting their New Year’s Resolutions. I enjoyed looking through everyone’s list and decided to make my own list.
To be honest, I have never really been a fan of New Year’s Resolutions because I can never follow through with them for more than a day. But this year my life is different. I do not have as many obligations as I normally do so that makes this the year of change.
On a few blogs I read about the Word of The Year 2010.

I love this idea and I wanted to come up with my word of the year too.
Being the perfectionist that I am I wanted to come up with the PERFECT word.
So first I made a list of words …
I love each and everyone of these words and couldn’t decide. So I decided to use the dictionary and look up each word.
And then I found it…
1: to free from impurities or unwanted material
2: to free from moral imperfection
3. to reduce in vigor or intensity
4: to free from what is coarse, vulgar, or uncouth
5: to become pure or perfected
6: to make improvement by introducing subtleties or distinctions
To me this word means to …
refine – my schedule
refine – my walk with Christ
refine – my life
refine – my constant yelling tones
refine – my mornings
refine – my relationships with my family and friends
I love my Word of the Year.
What about you? Have you thought about what your word could be? I would love to pray for each of you and your words.
