I chose a word for 2016, Blossom. I wasn't planning on choosing a word but it just appeared in front of me, on a blog I was reading. I love flowers so blossom is appealing. Blossom brings beauty to our world. Blossom encourages me to grow in some areas of my life. All in all, blossom is a good thing. These photos are of blossoms at our home last year.
Some ideas for a word for the year that others have chosen: adventure, grateful, peaceful, worship, empathy, behold, forward, courage, inhabit, eternity, engage, bubbly, discernment, listen.
