My Word


Fun Monday this week is hosted by Mothers of Brothers.  Here is her topic of choice.

So here is your Fun Monday Topic: Wordly Wise

Words are our building blocks, our stepping stones, and, for many of us, our salvation. We string them together so quickly at times, we often lose sight of how precious they are. So tell us about your favorite word… or if you can’t pick just one, tell us about a few. Are there certain words that feel good the way they roll of your tongue? Do some words make you feel smart? Or silly? Or happy? Which words do you find yourself selecting to put in your posts? Since this response could be a short one, feel free to poll your family and friends and include some of their favorite words as well. If you think a definition is required, please share one. Please keep the words rated G for all audiences. Any language is acceptable, but please provide a translation. And stick to real words as opposed to ones made up along the way. We then challenge everyone to visit the posts on Monday and try to use other bloggers’ favorite words in your blog next week. We can’t wait to expand our vocabulary!

my word of choice today is LOVE.  also known as Upendo (swahili)  Hera (Luo) LOVE is a powerful word.   It is deep and strong.  It can make you cry, laugh, happy, sad, emotional, sorry, tired, broke, fuzzy, giddy, giggle, silly, stupid, glow, sleep, not sleep, run, fly, lousy, I could go on and on.

always remember:

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends… 13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1Corinthians 13:4-8,13
