Choose Love. Be Intentional.

Love is a choice…
Love is a choice…
I had heard this before, but it really sank in about a year ago.
 I’ve made the choice to be in healthy, happy relationships – not only with my beau, but with friends and family too. I always laugh a little when I see the phrase “love is enough” because it’s so much more than that – it’s about being intentional.  Love is a good foundation for any close relationship- but we all know, love takes work…a lot of work.
This picture is of me and my beau with our book of love letters.  We’re in quite the unique situation, and have decided to show our affections for each other in a variety of ways.  Every few days we write in the book and hide it around our home.  Even though we know it’s hidden, we don’t really seek it out, so it’s always fun when we stumble upon it 🙂
Being intentional is a mindset.  It’s thinking about the little things.  Doing things just because. Getting flowers on a special day is lovely, but getting flowers on a random day, just because he knows they’re my favorite and  I’d love them – that’s what it’s all about.  And truly, it means so much more.
So my challenge is – choose love and be intentional.  It makes such a difference.

God is good friends.  God is good.
