The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

This is a phrase I used in my last post. Sounds good, but how do you live "intentionally"?
You take the time to appreciate life, not just rush though it (former me) Daily count your blessings
You respond to that still small voice that prompts you to make that call, write that note or send that text. I can't tell you how many times I would have been prompted to do something in the past and would intend on following through, but would just forget. Mind you I'm not there yet but Lord continues to give me opportunities.
You realize life can change in a moment, so you don't put things off that need to be done or said, this is particularly important when it comes to relationships.
Look for opportunities to listen to someone who may want to talk, you would be amazed how easily it is to engage someone with a kind word or comment.
Finally live each day as if it could be your last day.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom Psalm 90:12
