Layla's @ The Lettered Cottage Word of the Year Linky Party it got me thinking. Not new thoughts but thoughts that have been rolling through my head continually since we almost lost our precious youngest son on December 27, 2011. The word that seems best to sum up what I am thinking and feeling is Intentional.
Intentional is defined as: Done on purpose; deliberate.
Synonyms are: deliberate - wilful - willful - purposeful - intended
I have always tried to be an intentional person; someone who pays attention and doesn't miss the details. But somewhere along the line I have become distracted and realize that I have become someone who does miss the details and doesn't see and appreciate the small stuff. Sometime, some how...I just stopped focusing on what is really important. I stopped seeing the beauty in each moment. Maybe I just got too busy, maybe I just go too lazy, either way...my desire, my prayer, my goal for 2012 is to live more intentionally.
I want to live on purpose, I want to be deliberate in my relationships. I want to be willful in showing love. I want to be purposeful in my prayers, actions and even in my quiet moments.
