"One little word can light up someone's day. "
I continued to “make room” in 2010. When 2011 rolled around, I was ready for a new adventure. I signed up for One Little Word, a class taught by Ali Edwards, and I have been taking it ever since. The class added structure and reflection about each of the words I have chosen to embrace. Each month Ali provides a prompt around your word. Some years, I have been better at doing the prompts than others, and that is okay. Always, I have enjoyed the journey my words have taken me on.
My past words have been: Kindle (2011), Dwell (2012), Believe (2013), and Sail (2014). Each of these words continues to speak to me and have become part of my life.

An anchor travels with its ship to journeys end and then holds the ship securely, not allowing it to be shifted by storms, wind, or waves. This particularly appealed to me as we are planning on moving from the Hudson Valley of New York to a coastal town in South Carolina.
An anchor is an emblem of hope. When you are afraid, trust in God, is the anchor that will hold you in safety. He is the Anchor that holds.
