Clouds… More specifically, word clouds (sorry if you were thinking of fluffy white things). They are a fun way of organizing recurring words in any given text. Here is an example of a word cloud built with words that appear on this site (courtesy of Tagul):
I like word clouds. But my thoughts took me beyond ways of making a web page look more interesting, by using fancy tags… I got to thinking about key things in my life.
Ponder this: if your life were a written page, what words would stand out to anyone reading it? What would best describe it? Which things are important for you? What would you like to increasingly characterize your life?
It is useful at times to pause and reflect on such questions, to decide on changes we might need to make…
For those of us who are rather visually-oriented, a reminder we can daily look at can help significantly. So why not include all these personal life words in a custom-made word cloud of your own, to display in your home? Something to remind you of those important things you don’t want to miss in your life.
That is the very thing I did for my family. Here is our home word cloud with a vintage, shabby chic feel to it. What we love and would like to have in greater measure in our home life…
May each thing that stands out in your life be worthy and noble, something that would illustrate the unique way in which God put you together… with your own talents, gifts and interests… And may it be a precious thing of beauty!
