My first word, 'OPEN,' became a password, causing hinges on closed vaults to budge, inviting me to consider, probe and try things I would have ignored before "open" presided over my decisions.
The logo for 2012 was 'STEP,' a logical word to follow open. Step invited more adventuresome decisions and even ended up in the title for another blog: Step into Our Garden.
However, with 'step' and 'open' as influence peddlers, I noticed that life became cluttered with a few chotchkies with no clear purpose. Thus, my word for 2013: Intention.
The mantra for 2013 reflects my desire to become more aware of what lies behind my choices. I plan to study my intent and I intend to pay close attention to how it lines up with my desire to be time-wise and purpose-wise.
I'm certain 'intention' will inspire editing of the hubbub created by the previous words. But more importantly, I hope this word will rejuvenate the connection between the intentions of my Father-God and my own, as His indwelling Spirit gives me the wisdom and power to choose and do his will, performing His intention in my life.
