Zealous


Today is the LAST DAY of the A to Z Challenge.

Wow.  I made it.  What an accomplishment!  Way to go to all the other Challengers who completed the Challenge-- give yourself a pat on the back, or a high five, or some other congratulatory gesture!  You should be proud of yourself. :)

What are you zealous about?

Zealous, adj: Ardently active, devoted, or diligent, according to dictionary.com.

I'm zealous about and for my relationship with Jesus.  I'm more devoted to him than anything.  I'm enthusiastic, fervent, and passionate about my relationship with him (synonyms for zealous).

I'm zealous about marriage, and talking about what Godly marriage is.

I'm zealous about homemaking...most of the time, when frustration or weariness don't get me down.  I'm eager to do my best, enthusiastic about learning more, and devoted to my role as homemaker.

Zeal can be applied in the wrong ways sometimes.  It's only good if you're zealous about something good.  I pray that my zeal for the Lord, for marriage, and for my home never fade.

Tell me: what in your life brings out the zeal in you?

  4. Hmm... I'm not sure that I'm zealous about much... maybe my pursuit of magic in storytelling! :)
