As a new year is quickly upon us, I wanted to utilize one, simple word that can become a "focus" for me in 2015. The word I chose is "intent". I want my actions, my thoughts, my choices to be propelled by "intent", not reaction. My desire is to be intent about forging new friendships, intent about caring for my marriage, intent about raising up a young man...This being said, I do not mean that I want to "over-plan" life, never leaving room for surprises or spontaneity. There is balance between intention and allowance.
