What's Your Word?

I've just finished reading a book called "Eat Pray Love" By Elizabeth Gilbert. In it, she meets someone who has a theory that every place and person has a word that sums them up. For example, the word for the city of Rome is SEX and the word for New York is ACHIEVE.

Elizabeth eventually decides that her word is ANTEVASIN, a Sanskrit word meaning 'one who lives at the border', an in-betweener who belongs neither here not there.

This got me thinking - what's my word? After a bit of pondering, I think it's SAVED, because that's how I see myself. It resonates well with me and reflects the foundation of who I am, a child of God who's been saved by His grace.

What's your word?
