This is my word of the year. I want these things in my heart, soul, life, and world. I want this for me. I want it for those close to me, and I want it for strangers.
Restoration is not a switch

Restoration is happening now
and will be complete on ‘that day’
I was catching up on my list of blogs, and my friend, Malisa shared this website and challenge today.
One Word 365
I think it is a great way to look into a new year. It is a great way to make movements toward truly seeing things grow in the right way within and around us.
The one word website describes the challenge this way:
“One word can change everything. Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap the long list of goals that you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway. Choose just one word. One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live or what you want to achieve by the end of 2012. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long. It will take hard work, and will require intentionality and commitment. But if you let it, your word will shape you and your year. It will guide your decisions and help you grow.”
My word for this year will be: RESTORATION
What would your word be for this year?
