Hey friends. I am glad to be back here today.
I have been really enjoying this 1LW thing.

I can honestly say it has kept me accountable so far this year.
For those of you that are new, or the ones who forgot (how could you)
my word for 2012 is WORDS..
If you want to know why i chose this word head {here} 
If you want to see what changes I have already made read {here}

today I wanted to share with you some words that came to a new light for me today...
I am participating in a Bible study with 4 other women and we are studying the book of Matthew.
Today we focused on chapter 5 but mainly the beatitudes...
I found this website that broke down the beatitudes in a way that was more understandable..

1. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
            We must depend on God’s unconditional love.
2. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Those who are in anguish due to sin, sickness, death, poverty, war, or injustice will find their comfort someday.
3. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. (meek meaning humble/gentle)
We must realize our abilities inherited from God and then in doing well for others.
4. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
We must work for good relationships with our neighbors to promote peace among   nations.
5. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
We must instill compassion on others and learn to forgive those who have hurt us.
6. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
            We must be pure in our thoughts, acts and deeds. We must do the right thing.
7. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
            We must bring about peace with others, even if they are our enemies.
8. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Those who are condemned for the right thing will gain the courage and strength for as long as Christ lives in their hearts.

  I just love how it gives us modern day application.
Having my focus being on Words has had me in THE WORD so much more this year!
I am loving it and love learning all that God has to show me.

thanks for having me friends!
