This session we were asked to choose a special word for 2015. I wanted to choose one that is different from most routine words -- one that would make me think, so I chose:
Grace is receiving something you don't really deserve. For example, if you turn in a school assignment late, your professor may accept it because he felt you had a good excuse or he just felt like it. Grace has been defined as the "unmerited favor of God". Grace also has another side. I may receive grace, but then I can also give grace to those who may not deserve it from me.
So I choose GRACE as my word for the year -- Grace because I have received forgiveness for my sins and GRACE because I would like to show forgiveness to all those people and things I have shown no patience for in the past.
