Just as in previous years, as the time has drawn near, I’ve become excitedly anxious awaiting

the eagerly anticipated moment of the deliverance of these two special things!

“Of what?” you might ask.

Well, of the Word of the Year and the Saint of the Year – of course!


For more years than I can remember I have followed the practice of generating both A Word of the Year and a Saint of the Year which I pay particular attention to for 365 days!

*Several posts about this practice are littered throughout my bloggity-blog site, but you can click on the two links above to quickly reference two!

The very special part, for me, of partaking in this practice, are the very unique and sometimes necessary or needed ways these two items “show-up” in my life throughout the course of the year.
