My 2012 "one little word" is sparkle. I contemplated using shine but I think that shine implies that the glow is emitting from me and I want 2012 to be about me reflecting all that is bright and wonderful from God onto others. You can't help but smile when you see something sparkle (think about when you first saw that dazzling engagement ring, or glitter! It makes everything more spectacular!) And I hope to bring that same warmth into the lives of everyone whom I come into contact with this year!
