I've been thinking on this since Kelly posted about our new theme, and I've finally decided on my word for the year: Grace
noun * a sense of what is right and proper; decency
* thoughtfulness toward others
* goodwill; favor
* the unmerited love and favor of God toward mankind
For me this word has double meaning: How I treat others & handle the stresses of life- I'd like to do all of that with more grace this year.
Grace also means God's Favor, and I want to remember all the "little" things that I take for granted everyday as being nothing less than God's favor to me. Every good thing in my life, big or small, is a gift. Every breath is a gift, and I don't want to take that for granted. Life is too short. I want to live it with Grace:-)
