my word for 2012.  After several days of mulling it over, praying for that one word that would encompass all I wanted to be for this year, I have rested on INTENTIONAL.

In 2010 it was HOPE.  2011 it was THANKFUL.

1. done with intention or on purpose; intended 

These past two years of honing in on a word has revolutionized how I look at a year......a day and all the moments that create it.  Finding HOPE again led me to a book at the end of 2010 that challenged me to live a life of thanksgiving.  The practice of thanksgiving has shaped me and my days into joy and I am still overwhelmed by how that alone has been a gift to open everyday.

So now I want to take all of that....the hope, gratitude, joy and be intentional with how I live it out.  In all I say and do.

Intentional in becoming
all that God has created me to become
Accepting correction, feedback and the
wisdom of those who care about me.

Intentional in how I communicate love to
my husband, my kids
my friends
to lead and inspire those I influence
and those I may brush against everyday.
Intentional in my habits....
my quiet time
my study and writing
my health, exercise and diet.
