One Word

It seems to be quite trendy now to select a word to focus on for your year.  I'm not sure I ever wrote about it here, but I did share on Instagram that my word/goal for last year was "Faith".

Certainly my faith was tested in 2014 as we tried to continually believe in the call we felt toward adoption in the face of perpetual road blocks and delays.  I didn't focus on my word as much as I should have, but looking back it was clearly an appropriate choice.  

For 2015 I've had a clear sense that my word should be peace, coming from the verse, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God".  I got this beautiful necklace from The Rainy Season Jewelry entitled "peacemaker" for Christmas and I hope that it will serve as a physical reminder to me.
