Annus Mirabilis...

I love the start of a new year!
New possibilities... New adventures...
A time of great contemplation for so many.

I was reflecting this morning on the past few years of resolutions,
what it is I had intended to purpose in my heart to focus on for that year,
and as I look back, I can’t help but smile.

In 2009, I had reached a pivotal point in my life journey,
one that demanded a deeper kind of growth and development from me.
And since then, I can see that an intricate little network of building blocks has begun to form!
The ground work was being laid for the next step in my path.

2009 was about letting go, surrender, giving up attachment to results.
2010 saying “no,” and not taking on more than my capacity.
2011 making time for more “time,” being very intentional with my time.
2012 being more gracious, to those I know and those I don’t.
2013 was all about “more,” engaging more deeply.

And this year, 2014, I intend to speak life. Both in my own life, and the lives of those around me.
What does this mean? Well I hope you stick around to find out.
I have great expectations for this year, and look forward to seeing the fruits emerge.

Each new year, a threshold is crossed.
A gateway leading you to the next step on YOUR life journey.
One that is part of an intricate network of building blocks...

What kind of groundwork will you be laying this year?

Keep Shining Sweet Bellas!


  1. The sermon yesterday was about the woman who was going to lose her sons and so asked Elija what to do. He told her to go out and find all the jars she could. Imagine if she hadn't listened and only used the ones around her house. But she didn't do that. She aggressively went out and found every jar she could. As a result, God took care of her debt from the past and secured her future. My resolution is to aggressively seek God's promises, not just to settle for what I have on hand.

  2. Speaking words of life into others is such a blessing! I am excited to see how this year looks for you!

  3. I love OtherWordly. I'm seeing an annus mirabilis for 2014 as well. Doors unlocking with profound opportunity on the other side. We must only learn to step through. Thank you for sharing the past five years with us...and for inspiring me during the twilight hour of a challenging day. Onward.
