Jamie and I have been inspired by Bridget, to chose a word to motivate us in this next year instead of listing resolutions. We chose the word pursue.
: to strive to gain; seek to attain or accomplish (an end, object, purpose, etc.).
: to proceed in accordance with (a method, plan, etc.).
: to carry on or continue (a course of action, a train of thought, an inquiry, studies, etc.).
: to practice (an occupation, pastime, etc.).
Our goal is to pursue Jesus, pursue each other, pursue relationships, pursue godly parenting, pursue health and pursue simplicity.
