My word to live by for 2014


The last few months of 2013 held a lot of heartache for me and for my family. A few things I have mentioned on my blog and a few I have not, but through it all, it comforted me to know there was hope for what was to come.
Hope of redemption
Hope of healing
Hope of new life
Hope of a better tomorrow
Hope for change

Not only do I want to cling to hope, but I want to give hope to others.
I desire to learn more, grow more and connect more so that I can do that better.

No matter what comes my way in 2014, 
I want to remember that there is always hope because God's promises are true.

My 2013 word was thankful

SO sorry for your two recent loses. :( I don't have a word for this year, but I think if I could pick two they would be Courage AND Hope!
