Each year I choose One Little Word on which to focus for the upcoming new year. It is more relevant for me to have a word to focus on than to have a New Year's resolution which I usually blow within the first month and then I feel bad about myself.
In December my word came to me for 2016 and it was Grace.
Not the kind of Grace where I have to walk and act "graceful"......nope, that wouldn't be me! But the kind of grace that you don't see but you feel.
Looking back on the month of January, my dad was the perfect example of Grace. He was a quite man who loved his family and home. Dad worked hard and loved the simple things in life - his garden, going for a ride with mom, fishing, and good friends.

"I do not understand the mystery of grace -
only that it meets us where we are
and does not leave us where it found us."
