Grace - A Word for the New Year



A word for the new year
For my heart’s desire to now cherish and embrace
A word for the new year
Planted to grow, to blossom your fruit to appear
As guilt and worry with divine love to replace
All of God’s riches are found in his unearned grace
A word for the new year.

Grace is my word chosen for One Word 365 and My One Word

  4. I like the idea of grace replacing "guilt and worry". I wonder whether you will find that your view of 'grace' is enriched at the end of the year.

  6. Alan,

    I embrace your consideration of grace and of the riches we enjoy all year, provided by God. An importance in my own world as well.
