Power Lists

52 lists with Chasing Slow



Are you a list maker?  If not, words cannot describe the feeling of accomplishment in making a check to note that a task has been done!  I love making lists, to do lists for the day, for the calendar, to record fitness goals, to simply go to town a list helps me stay on track of where I'm going and what to do when I get there!!  I am a passionate list maker!

Another area of passion is words.  Words are powerful.  They can be used to uplift or to tear down. They often reveal what is in the heart. "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks."  Words can set the tone for the day, create an atmosphere for the home or connect with a child...all for good or bad. 

So often, those wonderful words lose steam once the day gets going.  A word of encouragement can quickly turn into a chastisement on the drive to school with a teenager!  Those lovely thoughts of what we want to say can disappear in the midst of dealing with unpleasant people.  Real life situations can easily disrupt our plans to speak words of life. 

What can make those words stick, where they will be spoken, used and lived out?  A list of course!!
A fun blog community encouraged bloggers to write 'words that touch your soul'.  To make a list of words that are meaningful to them.  

So, here is my list!

Genuine
Kind
Encouraging
Inspiring
Nourish
Grace
Hope
Gratitude
Compassionate
Bold
Loving

Words I would like to see come to life in myself and bring out in others.  This is going to be a great list to begin work on!  What words touch your soul?
