2012. It's hard to believe it's already been 12 months since celebrating 2011. But here we are, welcoming in another new year. Last year was riddled with tragedies, and in our family several health issues. It was though, a time for births, family gatherings, laughs, and good times.
This brings me to my word for 2012. When I first read Marilyn's post on having a word, one immediately struck my heart. But then, thinking that was just too easy, I started to think of other words. The word compassion came to mind, and I even told Marilyn that was my word. I was sure. But the first word kept nagging me, and I knew that all the words I had thought of led back to this one, and I knew at that moment that God had implanted that word in my heart. And He's never wrong..
So my word for this year is Faith. Faith that health will come to my Mother. Faith that my family will overcome issues. Faith that through prayer, happiness will be more prevalent. That the world will have less disaster, and our leaders will have some sense. So my altar is ready. My candle, lit. And the names of family, friends, and even you when you need it, will be added and prayed for daily, with faith that our Father will answer, and faith that we will accept His answers.
So here is 2012, with faith for a better, brighter year. God Bless You All.
