I took a quiz through Live Your Faith and was given the word GATHER as my word for 2020. This is exactly where I was going on my own so GATHER, it is. I want to be more intentional with relationships. Making time to connect in real life, not just through social media.
Do you pick a word for the year? I skipped it last year but feel really good about it this year. Happy New Year, everyone!

Happy New Year Ti. I’ve never picked a word of the year but, if I did, this year would probably be: “contentment”.
That would be an excellent word. I am always impressed with the words that everyone chooses. I tend to float between the same words every year so gather was pretty surprising and perfect given what was on my mind.
Gather is a good one. I chose POSITIVE, hoping that I will be reminded to look on the positive side of things, events, and people.
Positive is a good one too. I feel as if I have a positive outlook but I do like to wallow in misery first. Haha.
Ti, I took the quiz and got ‘Bloom’. I’ll have to think about that one and see how it might apply. I have some ideas. ‘Gather’ seems like a great word and could be used in many ways. Thanks for sharing your word!
Bloom. I kind of love that word. Hints at new beginnings and discovery.
Gather sounds like a good year. My word last year was ” DELIBERATE” and that was a good word for me last year. This year, I haven’t selected one word….I’m not even sure what it would be.
Actually I don’t think I’ve had one word for two years now. that was my word in 2017…gee…if I picked one, I clearly don’t remember it.
I need to think of a Word. Gather is good for you!
That’s a very good choice for one word. So many areas of life to apply it to and so many ways to use it to the fullest. I don’t have a word this year. My last year’s was Simplify and had major success with it. I guess I need to think more for this year.
I did simplify or simply, can’t remember. It worked well for me at the time. I’m hoping to really put GATHER to use this year.
I like “gather,” though it’s not a word that would have come into my mind. It seems like a broad word, that can be applied many ways.
Because I was already focused on the relational aspect of the word I didn’t even consider the other possible meanings. There are many, as you said.
I picked the word “enough” last year and then let it just fall. So this year I picked it again and I’ll be making a monthly goal to focus on one area in particular to make sure I’m living that word.
That’s bold of you to try the same word again. I have no patience these days. I probably would have given up. I like the word though. It sounds like it could mean many different things things.
I am looking back on this from the perspective of a year’s time, and my first thought is how much I want to gather in 2021.
I thought about using GATHER again for this year but I don’t want to jinx it.
