one little word 2013 {heart}

I love this quote from Ali Edwards: "A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. From my own personal experience, it can be a catalyst for enriching your life."

I began pondering my one little word back in December, and I had many words tossing about in my head (because really there are so many great words out there that could be brought into my life), but none that felt just right to me. Past years words have been intentional in 2010 & experience in 2011.

After thinking for several weeks on what my one little word would be for 2013,  the word {heart} kept coming up over and over to me in different ways. And I just knew this was the word that I wanted to focus on in my life this year.

Definition of {heart}: noun /härt/

The word {heart} has special meaning to me this year and has come up in so many bible verses, daily devotions, bible studies, quotes, and my own recent heart diagnosis; that I am just so excited to see how relevant this word is and where it will take me.
