A new page, in a new journal, with a new word…. for a new year!
This page and my word for the year came together rather unexpectedly.
I couldn’t land on a word that I wanted to focus on for the year, everything felt hazy, and any time I thought I might have found “the” word…. it felt trivial and superficial.
So I just let it rest and figured it would come.
Then when I saw what was unfolding at the Capitol, I just could not believe what I was seeing. And a sickening feeling came over me.
I blurted out a prayer asking for peace. And just sat… and sat with sadness and journaled my way out.
As I was journaling, I wrote out “Oh Lord, please, I can’t go through another year of this fear and craziness” and continued to write about how I wanted to be rooted and grounded in love, grace, and mercy.
And the word grounded stuck with me….. I share more about how this came together and the meaning for me in the video.
Enjoy the video and may you find yourself grounded in love, grace, and mercy.
