This seems to a be a trend prevailing the blogosphere at the moment, and I quite like it. A little while ago I got a deep-seated feeling in my bones that this year was going to be my and hubby’s year. Although at the time, I didn’t quite put a word to it, I just felt that this year things are really going to turn around for hubby and I. In a lot of areas, but specifically with regards to our finances. And the thought that flitted across my brain is that by the end of this year, hubby and I will be singing a very different tune regarding our money woes.
And then I read, “One Part Joy One Part Circus” about her word for this year (which is strength, by the way) and the word abundance came to me. And I know that this is our word for this year.

Now, I’m not saying that we’re going to win the lotto and be stinking rich by the year’s end, but I am saying that this is our word for this year. Let’s see where God takes us on this journey.
I haven’t even told hubby, because I say this to him every year – but every year I when say this to him it is to encourage him for the year ahead. This feels a little different.
