This wasn’t planned.
When we decided to partner with OneWord 365, we envisioned each of us individually offering up our own words. And that’s happening. (I knew it would be something meaningful, but I wasn’t prepared for it to take my breath like it has. Join us! )
What we hadn’t considered in the planning of this was that perhaps we should choose One Word for all of us. A word to cast our vision here Velvet Ashes for 2014. We didn’t plan or ask for a word, and yet it came.
The inspiration sparked, it latched on like One Words do.
So here it is…
I feel it in our veins already. We’re catching our stride, we’re stretching our wings, and Velvet Ashes, we are here to CREATE.
We’re here to create a song, an anthem of His love. Do you hear it rising? Rising from the corners of the world. He loves us, he loves us…
We’re here to create a story, pages of global sisterhood. A story of courageous hearts, weak and weary, linking arms to pull each other along. Your story, your life, your day… it matters.
We’re here to create a haven, a place where you put aside those masks, where you say when you’re not okay. You are not alone, dear one.
We’re here to create a call, a challenge to dig in, to find our brave voice, and to let it ring clear. You, yes you, have something to share.
We’re here to create beauty. Because filled up with love and grace and truth and life, you’re beautiful, and beauty flows from you.
This year is our year to CREATE.
And it’s already happening. Have you seen the glory of One Words whispered into hearts and poured out, a fragrant offering? We’re waiting for yours…
With the Creator himself, through his fingertips, we are creating here. As we move together through 2014, may we look and say, “It is good.”
Join our chorus of One Words here.
As you step into the new year, what are you longing to create?
