I make lists. I love making lists. Lists of things to do, list of things I have done or completed. In the back of my journal I keep lists of books I have read or films I have seen in that year. I also make lists of my favourite things: food, shops or music I like listening to.
Thinking about what five words have real power and depth of meaning, that can create profound change, I came up with:
Love – noun – a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
Forgiveness – noun – act of forgiving; state of being forgiven
Grace – noun – the freely given, unmerited favor
Mercy – noun – an act of kindness, compassion, or favour
Justice – noun – the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness
* from the Concise Oxford Dictionary
I originally wanted to create different images for all five words to go with todays post. Instead, I decided to keep it simple and use a selection of close-ups of a heart I created with rice.
