Live with Intention

Today I am thrilled to have my bloggy friend, Tammy of Missionary Trek, with us. Please help me welcome her!

First, I want to say thank you to Jenifer for the invite to guest post from time to time. What an honor! Jenifer and I met via blogging and have become friends quickly. Social media has become such a wonderful connecter of like minded people. As a missionary I am forever thankful for all the bells and whistles. Skype, email, Facebook, twitter and blogging are all gifts from God! Can I get an amen?

However, if we are not careful we can become lost in our gadgets and miss the moment in front of us. Both my husband and I have faced death over the last year. I had a run in with cancer and he just dodged a heart attack. These moments cause us to pause and rethink our life choices. How do I want to spend my life? What does God want from me? What will my friends and family remember when they think of me? I’d hate to think that all my memories of life were nothing more than text messages and tweets. To live life to its fullest in every moment is a gift that should be cherished. Enjoy social media but in the process don’t miss the moment!

Live with intention.

Laugh out loud.

Be in the moment.

Cherish life!
