My Word

My word for 2008 is {{drum roll}} CHERISH.

I exhausted myself the last couple of years trying to achieve some personal goals of mine. Now that I created those experiences, I feel the pull to refocus, slow down, and cherish the life I’ve worked so hard to create.


I cherish the moment that I am now living,
I live every day like it will be my last,
Breathing the air that’s so pure around me,
The times I remember that go by so fast.

I cherish the moment that God has now given,
As I slowly walk along life’s endless shore,
And see his creation the mountains and valleys,
The seas and the oceans the land I adore.

I cherish the moment and chance I’ve been given,
A fine treasured gift I can never repay,
The love that I feel and the peace that’s surrounding,
So precious the feeling that’s with me each day.
