2018: Begin

Yesterday we were singing a hymn in church and the lyrics struck me in a new way. A hymn I’ve sung for a long time and know the words to, but as I was thinking on the year wrapping up and a few other things going on, these lyrcis pierced my heart: “How I’ve proved…

2017: Grow

Here it is already one month down of 2018, and I’ve yet to write about 2017 and my word from the year.  I already have the word for 2018 tucked away, it was one that was so very clear to me. I remember at the beginning of 2017 after turning the calendar and having relied…
