This morning I woke to something unexpected: HOPE. It washed over me like a giant wave. My thirsty spirit drank up hope like a wilted flower in a parched land. God is the source of all hope. He is the source of all my inspiration, including that which sparkles. My wish for you, my dear reader, is that your year will be filled with hope and that you will have many beautiful sparkling moments. And that you will know that God already has plans for you, good plans to prosper you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Cheers to the first day of 2012!
