Intentional, defined: done with intention or on purpose; intended
Whether we choose to admit it or not, no matter our age, every girl's dream is to dress up beautiful and to then be escorted to the ball by none other than her dashing prince!
I was so encouraged - no, thrilled - no - what's the word I'm looking for? MOVED, INSPIRED, CHALLENGED by the faces in the myriad of pictures posted on Facebook of my friend-daddies with their precious daughters (of all ages) at the Rolling Hills Daddy-Daughter Ball! One of my favorite favorite things about my church, Rolling Hills, is their passion to live intentionally, to live on purpose. And the impact I see to that type of living is none other than profound.
What really caught my attention in those pictures, however, was not just the beautiful dresses on the beautiful girls with their beautiful smiles and their beautiful hair, but the dazzling smiles on their daddies' faces. Just see for yourself!
So what does a Daddy-Daughter Ball have to do with the price of tea in China, or how I, the empty-nested mother of three boys, live my life intentional? Everything! Those smiles, remember, aren't just on the faces of the daughters, they're also on the faces of the daddies. Intention makes all the difference! It makes not only a difference in the recipient, but also the benefactor.
So whether it's the Daddy-Daughter Ball right there up close and personal in your world or whether it's the homeless street-paper seller on the corner who who needs money for lunch, whether it's the heart of someone in your very own family or the heart of a complete stranger, let's choose to be intentional, let's choose to make someone smile today! I guarantee you'll reap a smile yourself!
