My Watchword Text

Every year at the first Sunday worship service, each congregant chooses a personal watchword. These are usually single verses or brief Bible passages that provide some valuable insight or inspiration. This is a longstanding tradition similar to the use of daily texts that a regular opportunity for the same. In fact, many organizations within the church also choose watchwords - youth group, choir, boards, etc.

To be honest, usually the watchword is a nice proverb that seems interesting, but I forget about it by the end of January. This year, M & I were working the kitchen in prep for our pork and sauerkraut supper- with yours truly being in charge of mashed taters. Luckily, or good friend brought the watchwords downstairs and reminded us to choose one for ourselves. Getting back to the point - my watchword this year just might stick with me.

The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

No doubt we'll need to keep this in mind during in 2007 as we continue the process to bringing home Carmen.
