one word. one word to describe what you would like 2012 to bring.

i am throwing around 'increase', 'activeness', 'movement', 'determined', 'advance' and 'purposefulness'. can you help me narrow it down?

i am really leaning towards 'increase' since we want to add to our family, we want to up our giving to others, we would like to see a raise in hubby's job and i want to grow in my fitness (run a half-marathon in may, complete 90 days of a beachbody program and attend yoga on a consistent basis), but the other words appeal to me as well.

what would your one word be?

He loves us

this morning i was listening to a song that i've heard a million times before. maybe even heard a million and one times.

i started singing along. i not only heard myself sing the words, i felt them.

And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us all
Yeah, He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves

go ahead. sing it. sing it with some heartfelt feeling to it. and see if you don't tear up too. He loves us. wow! how incredible is that?!?
