Yesterday I posted that I would not be making a New Years Resolution, but rather have one large goal to work towards that will take care of the rest. While I am definitely sticking with that frame of mind, I also read a blog post from Becki at WhippyCake.com that inspired me to choose “one little word” to remember throughout the year. I encourage you all to read both Becki’s and Ali Edward’s blogs. Becki’s in particular inspired me, because I feel exactly how she does about the world around us. Things seem increasingly negative and even scary lately, but instead of letting that darkness creep in on us we have to be the light we wish to see in the world. Be that happy little ray of sunshine that someone having a bad day might need Sparkle, if you will
My one little word is, grace. I have a long list of things to do this year and it will be only by God’s grace that I am able to accomplish them all.
Seemingly effortless beauty or charm of movement, form, or proportion.
A characteristic or quality pleasing for its charm or refinement.
A sense of fitness or propriety.
A disposition to be generous or helpful; goodwill.
The state of being protected or sanctified by the favor of God.
An excellence or power granted by God.
Happy 2013 everyone, take a deep breath, smile really big, and make this year count.
