Da Word!

I wasn't doing a word theme for this year till I went to our Stake Conference yesterday, but something struck me hard, and now I am doing something about it...


Here is theme for 2009.......




Every year my resolutions go down the drain, but with a theme, how can I go wrong, If it is merely one little thing that I change, it will be for the better.


I am going to start worrying so much about the outside of me, I am going to worry about my Eternal Salvation. NO more pish posh, need to get looking good,


I am getting older...ugh.... I can change the way I do my hair, color it, or put make up on to hide issues I have... but=


Heavenly Father sees me inside and not out.


I am taking off my old self, and slipping into a new one starting today.


I am putting Heavenly Father first, in everything I do, in return, my children will change, my husband will change, and I will change.


So if you see the old Devri laying around, just kick her to the side,


I WILL NOT BE NEEDING HER ANYMORE.


A change. A little one, a big one..


Changing today....

Most times my change comes kicking and screaming all the way, but you make it sound so do-able! Maybe I'll try your way. Good word! (sometimes)

We all need to do this for ourselves and for our families. Please tell me that the old Devri will still do the Nutcracker in 5 mins though!

I really think that you are finding that beauty in getting older. Things do change. We realize things differently. I love the word you chose. It will carry you through many things this year. Good luck and I can't wait to hear more.

I love the old Devri and I can't imagine how the changed Devri would be. Does that mean I would love her twice as much? ♥
Thanks for the neat thought today!

I like that word!

Tara D said...

So many people are forgoing the typical New Year's resolutions and doing this "one word" thing. It's a great idea really, maybe something I should do too. hmmm...
I like the word you chose, it kinda suits me too, only just I'm changing my outsides too. LOL :)
