It was really neat to be able to attend church on New Year’s Day. I don’t recall having done that in a very long time. It was a perfect way to pause after the holidays, reflect on the past year, and focus on the new one.

We went through the process of choosing three words that reflected our family in 2011, and three words that we hope will be reflective of ourselves and our family in 2012. Then, we were given the opportunity to have prayers of blessing prayed over us by a pastor or staff member. It was beautiful and a great way to start the new year.

Here are my three words for 2012.

1. Focus

2. Intentional

3. Trust

I look forward to writing more about these words in the months to come. They also compliment my #FinishYear goals as well. Happy New Year!
