When you hear the word” intentional”, does that make you think of something negative or positive?  I have to admit, in the past I would say that “intentional” was perceived in the light of something negative–  an intentional foul in a sport, an act done intentionally, without thought of the consequences or the ramifications that may follow.  

Webster defines intentional as follows: done on purpose, deliberate.

At the end of 2021, with 2022 around the corner, I decided that instead of setting a list of “New Year’s Resolutions'' that may or may not be broken, I wanted to pick a “word of the year”. I know this is not a new concept for many people, but it was a new goal for me. The word “intentional” is what I decided was appropriate for this year. Lots of changes are coming into our family and I am choosing the positive side of this word.  

I have set out to focus on being intentional, or deliberate in growing the relationships that I currently have in my life. Sometimes this comes easier than other times, when it may mean sacrificing what I want to do to spend time one on one with kids, my husband, or a friend. I want to look back at the end of 2022, Lord willing, with great memories, less regrets, and stronger connections to the people that mean the most!

Great job, Tami, and what a reminder that we should all strive to be intentional, especially in our walk with the Lord which, in turn, affects every area of our lives!!!
