One Little Word

One Little Word. Have you ever tried this? Last year was my first year, and my word of the year was REST.
There were days that I did a great job, and there were days that were...not so great.
1 Peter 5:7 says "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
There were a lot of things in 2017 that made me very anxious...and 80% of those things were things I couldn't control. 2017 was a year of extreme joy and extreme pain...and so when I was thinking about what I wanted 2018 to look like- I almost instantly knew the word.
My word of the year is PEACE. You might notice a peace theme coming into some of my designs this year.
To Seek Peace and Pursue It. 
Peace about where I am in my life, peace about my family, peace about my relationships, and peace about ellyandgrace.
I've always been the type that gets hyper stressed out about the little things, and I think peace is the perfect word for me going into 2018.
What's your OLW?

    My word is BRAVE! This year I’m going to be brave. I’m going to share more of myself and I’m going to push myself out of my comfort zone.

    My word is joy. After a year of ups and downs I choose the joy of the Lord everyday.

    Romans 15:13 (ESV)
    13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
