The word cloud is beautiful!!!
An amazing accomplishment with the love and energy of so many women. I am also amazed at the number of people who [anticipated in the mini retreat to find their word. It shows just how wide spread your ministry, Christine, is traveling. Such a simple, yet profound experience – choosing or letting a word choose us for the year. Thank you for these gifts of words. I watched over the days and saw what words were being recorded and found what each person said of their process to be inspiring. Truly, an incredibly memorable process for all who participated.
Beautiful! The energy within and emanating from our Word Cloud is palpable. Thank you for inviting and creating this gift Christine. I’ve been living remotely without internet and cell service for 7 months. It feels so good to reconnect with such a conscious-minded, heart-wide-open group of travelers on The Way. Blessings in abundance!
How exciting! And thank you so much.
Sure thing Kathie, just right-click on the image and save to your desktop. :-)
Love the word cloud! Can it be downloaded for a screen saver? ? Wonderful words and participation in this group!
What riches are in store for 2016! I located my word on the cloud and have looked at the words surrounding it. My commitment is to pray for the people who posted those words. Maybe this activity will enhance community???
