word of the year
A week into the new year, still reflecting, still looking forward. I liked the idea I saw over on tip junkie about having a word of the year. I often have a theme verse for a season, and sometimes theme words just come to me as God is teaching me... through sermons, songs, verses and life. Like a few years ago, when He was teaching me about His MERCY.. what an incredible gift. (And where our little Mercy got her name.) And then there was a season of PRAISE. Praising Him through it all.. the pleasant, the difficult... fighting through praise, finding strength through praise. And then Judah came along. His name means praise. So does Brooklyn's, by the way. Which is awesome. Ezekiel means strength. That's not my word for the year, but I thought you might like to know, and didn't want to leave him out.
