|2014| the year of GRACE.

Grace (noun): simple elegance, the exercise of kindness, love and good will, the undeserved kindness or forgiveness of God, perfection of form.

Grace is my word for 2014.  When I think to the future, I want to live a life of grace.  I want to take who I am today, broken pieces and all, and refine myself into the woman that I want to be. 

I love the beginning of a New Year.  I love the new planners, the fresh mindsets, and the happiness of people. I love the reflecting and growing people do during this time.

This year I have been struggling to come up with goals for 2014 and I think it's because I am content with where I am right now.  God has provided a peace in my heart that has filled my life with joy and happiness. For many years, I have always planned my life, but this year is different. All of my planning doesn't seem to matter anymore because I know his plan is greater and I am willing to trust him.

"Sometimes where we THINK we're supposed to be is far lesser than where God KNOWS we belong. He does have a plan for your life: a big, marvelous, fantastical plan.  And if you're willing to show up: broken spirit, broken dreamsbroken heart, and all, and hand him the pieces, he'll turn it all into something beautiful."- Mandy Hale

This year I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection...and when I fail, he promises to give more grace. |2014| the year of grace.
