Happy New Year…… I’m a little late at saying that but it’s only the 7th so I think it can slide. How was your last year? Mine was a flash but this year will be different. Just like every other year right? No, I really hope this year is different. I really did not like last year. It had to be done but it was not fun. The only redemption came over the holidays and I am very thankful for that. But regardless it kinda sucked. This year will be different. But what will I do to make it different? I have a laundry list of items that need attention but the biggest thing will be intentionality. Is that a word? I’ll have to ask someone I guess but it explains what I mean to say. I really want to work on being intentional with my prayer life. I want to talk to my heavenly father because I can. I want to be intentional with my Bible time; not just my morning reading but evening with the family and also making sure my family is doing well with theirs. I want to be very intentional with my marriage; It is a bond created by God and something no man can break. My wife is my best friend and I want to grow that bond even more. I want to be intentional with my children; I need to play with them more . I need to teach them more. I need to discipline them more when it’s needed because I love them and want the best for them. I need to be intentional with my friendships and extended family. I need to be intentional with my work and personal business. Money, health……. The list goes on and I have a lot of work ahead of me. But I want this year to truly be different.

Thanks for reading and God bless.
