Then I was seeing it. More people I knew were choosing names for 2011. Over and over I found myself inspired. I would read a word and taste its sweetness. However, I would think, even if I did name the year, I couldn't choose just one name.
I knew my word for the year is grace.
It had been showing up in all sorts of places.
Before Christmas and my birthday I had puzzled over the idea of growing gracefully.
Doing ballet, I have worked hard to dance with grace.
Believing in Jesus, I have been enveloped in grace.
Christmas morning came and what did I receive? A necklace (made by a friend who also named her year) with words on it picked for me by my Mom.
Let go of perfection. Always grace.
I still haven't completely figured it out. I simply see that for me, this year is a year of grace. ~Megan
If you too are naming your year, please share!
