I have chosen a word to focus on in 2011. I love the different meaning of this word and I hope it will remind me each time I see it that I need to embrace God's gifts in my life, that I need to remain positive about God's path for my life and to literally embrace the love in my life.

Love Embrace. My pastor last week was just quoting that same "time for everything."
