This is my third year selecting “one little word” to help me through the year – and idea I learned of through Ali Edwards.

The word serves as a sort of a theme for my year.  A bit of inspiration.  A word to guide me through the year.   

Last year it was progress. 

The year before it was proactive. 


This year it is glorify – as in glorify God in all that I do.  

Being able to glorify God is something Andy and I often pray – that what we do and what J does will glorify God. 

Recently I came to that as the prayer I have for Andy in his cases – that he glorify God even in the dark and challenging situations that often constitute his work.


Taking this One Little Word thing seriously, I did a bit of research about glorify – what is it to glorify.  I came to understand that glorifying God comes down to this:  

1. Appreciation – to set God highest in our thoughts;

2. Adoration – think worship God;  

3. Affection – loving God; and 

4. Subjection – dedicate myself to God, ready to serve him in all I do.

So, there you have it, my one little word for this year.

Photos in this post are from my trip down to the river last Sunday morning.

  1. beautiful word and pictures to go with it! AMAZING! I am NOT good at nature/landscape photography, so I admire yoU!

  2. Pretty snowy scenes. I like your idea of a word for the year…. might be a good idea to add a verse to it….a Bible verse that uses the word or expresses the idea.
