Favorite Word Friday

It finally happened! I have literally waited my whole entire life for this day - and now it is upon me!! "What??" you ask...well...I have FINALLY been asked what is my favorite word!! For those of you who know and love me you know how important this will hopefully even know my favorite word!
What is my favorite word? I actually have 2!! But, I will share that in just a moment.

I have a wonderful new friend in blog land - Cindy @ I Owe It All To Him - what an incredibly inspirational site - I just love it and I know you will as well! Cindy hosts a virtual party every Friday with a different theme - this week Cindy made my dream come true and asked us all to share our favorite word. Thank you Cindy!!!
It all started when I was a little girl - I used to watch the television program "The Electric Company". Do any of you remember this show? They always had a special segment where a news reporter would randomly stop people on the street and ask them to share their favorite word. I knew at a young tender age that I had to be ready with my own favorite word in anticipation of my very own interview. never happened...never mind that...I have been poised with my favorite word all of these years and I have finally been asked the question of questions!!!

So, without further adieu....drum roll favorite word is and always will be: QUICKLY!
QUICKLY ~ isn't it just a lovely word? I have no explanation of why this is my favorite word - and why would a 5 year old pick this word as a favorite? These are the mysteries of life!

Remember I said I have 2 favorite words - I have a favorite word in the Bible!
I know that "quickly" is in the Bible as well - but I have to have a separate favorite word that is God inspired. That word is ~ LOVINGKINDNESS. This is the most magnificent word to me - oh I just adore it. Most people do not realize that this is actually a word - believing it to be 2 separate words or even a word with a hyphen. This is an one word and I love it!!!
Psalm 26:3
For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
and I have walked in Your truth.
Psalm 36:10
Oh continue Your lovingkindess to those who know
You, and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
Psalm 63:3

Your lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise you.
Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord appeared to me saying "Yes, I have
loved you with everlasting love; therefore with
lovingkindness I have drawn you."
Psalm 103:1-5
Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me,
bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and
forget not all His benefits; Who forgives all your
iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems
your life from destruction, Who crowns you with
lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your
mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed
like the eagle's.

  2. Oh my gosh, Concetta,
    I didn't know that The Electric Company did that!!!! That is so cute!!
    And I feel so HONORED to be the person to ask you YOUR word! (I was smiling from ear to ear reading this awesome post!)

    I had NO idea that lovingkindness was one word--wow!! And I think it sums up why we are here on the show lovingkindness to others....completely amazing!!!

  7. Hi Concetta,
    It is Saturday and I'm still thinking about your beautiful word!!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Hello Concetta, Yes Gods loving Kindness is undeserved by us, and ours just the same.
    You wrote it perfectly. God bless you...

  9. What a great story! It just tickles me to have read it. I will be sharing it with a few of my friends who I know will enjoy it as well. Thank you for that this morning.

    Take Care~ Sherry

  11. Hi Concetta,
    Come on over to my blog to see the "Beautiful" tags--You won one tonight...Please email me your address so I can send it! (Oh, and your last name.)

  12. Hi Concetta,
    I just stopped over to say "hi" and hope things are going great with you!!!

  13. Now I have to think if I have a favorite word, never been asked and never have I thought about it. We have favorite numbers and colors, why not a word?

  14. Oh, what a wonderful post! I can just imagine you as a little 5 year old thinking hard to figure out what your favourite word would be. So cute! And quickly is one of those great words that just sounds exactly like it means. :)

    Lovingkindness is the MOST amazing word - thank-you for thinking about it and posting those beautiful promises from God. Very touching.

    I hope your computer is fixed QUICKLY and that in the meantime, you are very aware of God's LOVINGKINDNESS in your life. :)


Please leave a comment on my Blog of Life ~ I love hearing from you!


The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
