Unearthing My Word


One of my favourite things to do is to take something that is tired or discarded and  find fresh purpose for it......

Whether it is seeing someones eyes light up by a smile or a kind word or two.

or in creating vignettes  or re purposing furniture around my home.

 Maybe it is in  painting a wall a fresh,new colour,  
placing flowers on my table....
 or in something as simple as using up what is in my fridge to make a tasty supper.

As I contemplated my word for this year, the word revive kept coming back to me..... Revive.....restore to life, or give new strength or energy to.
The other word that kept recurring was light.the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.


Two words to carry hope and potential in a dark, desperate world.

So here in my small sphere of knowing I choose to emphasise these two words through out my year.
Reviving light...restoring energy and purpose.

                 Rejuvenating and renewing life as best I can.. 
                             in a worn out and weary world.

    the photos in this post all come from this book....
                 a Christmas gift from my daughter.                                       


  1. Lucy, your new words for the new year are good ones. We all need to be revived every now and then, and I can't think of a better word than 'light.' This is such a charming book from your daughter. I wish you peace in the new year.....and thank you for being a 'light' on those dreary days.

    love, ~Sheri

    ps I like your new blog look, and it looks like some of your pictures got a bit larger.

  2. Love your words, especially
    in this bleak mid-winter season!
    When we get bright sunshine
    here in MN, it's generally super
    cold.....If it's warm (and that's
    relative!), it is overcast. I think
    that means we have to make
    our own light ~ revive ourselves!

    Happy 2015!

  3. Reviving light...the task of every luminary. Great focus, Lucy.
    Thank you for visiting, friend.
    Love your beautiful book.

  4. Love your words...love this book. I need to pull mine out and peruse it again.


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
