My One Word for 365

I wasn't really sure this yearly project or goal for me really applied until I realized how much I can struggle with Perfection.  Perfection... is a high standard, right? As I shared these last few posts I often find myself struggling with my idea of perfection, whether it be with 3.75 kids or 2.65 dogs... I want it and I want it to be perfect.

If you didn't read in my last post, perfection is not obtainable or realistic and it will not make you happy.  

I didn't really know how hammered into my head that this was going to get until I saw this instgram photo that said "I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection."

Um hello? God...I know that was for me, especially with what I've been learning about myself since the loss of Samson.

So my word for 2014 is Grace

My hope and goal for 2014 is finding that peace in God's grace and not my idea of perfectionism.
