OLW Blog Hop


Welcome to April's One Little Word blog hop. I am happy to be apart of this group of blogger's committed to working their word throughout the year, one month at a time.

First up is a review of the first month.

February's prompt was to watch and observe the way my word works in the world around me. This is my interpretation of that prompt.

 March's prompt was one little action. I was encouraged to come up with an action statement. Then I was to mark a date on the calendar card when that action was to take place. Well, my version went further than that. By virtue of my olw: pray, I believe my word requires action every day. And so for almost everyday of the month, I had a word of action that chose me how to live in that day.

I say it chose me as I did not look for the action, it came to me daily. And daily I attempted to live out loud the olw.

Now I invite you to 'hop' on over to Nikki's blog for the next installment of today's OLW blog hop.

And if you would like to start from the beginning, Margie is the one to thank for putting this into action this month, and every month.
