It\’s that time again. Where we gather together to give updates on our Word Of The Year; visit us to see how our One Word journies are going at the #OneWord Community over at my friend Lisa\’s place.

I\’m INTENTIONAlly getting back to you.

September was so busy. I participated in craft fairs with my friend. There were fairs back to back every weekend in September. 

Some of you may have heard me say I\’m a not-so-serious crafter. Throughout most of my adult life, I can either take or leave crafting. Usually, the mood comes and goes, and I have to jump on it when it happens.

I\’ve been helping my older best friend in Christ make wreaths this past year. She then began participating in craft fairs/festivals over the past year. Now mind you, I\’m still meh…

However, I love browsing Pinterest for everything from interesting facts to nostalgia. So for giggles, I began searching for different crafts other than wreaths. I found a few that piqued my fancy and made a few.

And guess what? Something totally unexpected happened. I felt JOY! Could it be that Jesus is leading me to try something new? My guess is yes. And he knows how much I LOVE to make and see people smile. So I think I\’m on to something here and will give it a whirl.

Anyhow, I digress.

I wanted to let my blogging friends and readers know how much I appreciate you and your comments on my posts and when you share them. 

I apologize if it\’s been taking me a while to answer you. Please know that I will always Intentionally answer you, even if it takes me a bit.

Intentionally Getting Back To You,


— Me

  1. Good to hear you’re finding joy. I always want to choose joy for my word for the year. It just makes me feel good. Would love to see your wreath creations. Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 86. Shared.

  2. I’m so glad you are finding joy in creating and sharing your craftes, Paula! And it is the perfect time of year to share them with the holidays around the corner.

  3. Paula, I’ve never been much for crafts, but I do love to “create”. Cross-stitch, painting, cooking, baking, quilting. I feel JOY when I do those things too, perhaps because we are made in the Creator’s image we are most fulfilled creating, whatever that looks like for us!!

  4. That word JOY. I talked with God about it just this week. That I needed to feel it. It seems it’s been a while. Working on it.

    1. I’ve been feeling more of it just lately.

  5. Paula, it is so true …sometimes we have the very best intentions and life just causes us to digress. It happens to me every week 🙂

  6. I’m glad you found joy in a new hobby.

  7. I’m so glad you’re finding joy this month through crafting. It sounds to me that your underlying intention to make and see people smile is exhibiting itself through making wreaths with your friend. Good all the way around! 🙂

    I’ve gotten SO behind on answering blog comments myself. My intention is to answer as many as I can, but trying to give myself grace for all the times I fall short….

  8. I thought I commented on this post already as I remember reading it, but I don’t see my comment anywhere, so I’m assuming it didn’t take. Anyway, glad you found joy in a hobby…I love discovering new hobbies to enjoy.

    1. Yes, I did see your other comment, it did take. Thanks again.

  9. Paula, what a great post! I had your word a few years ago, because I needed to learn to be more intentional. This year my word is hope, and it’s been a great word. Blessings to you! I’m your neighbor at the #oneword2022 linkup.

    1. Thanks bunches Gayl. Bessings back atcha friend.

  10. I don’t often intentionally go outside my comfort zone–but when I do, I’m usually pleasantly surprised!

  11. I’m glad you experienced joy in helping your friend with a meaningful craft project. What more can we ask for?
    Wishing you joy and love in your intentional journey in the last days of 2022. Hugs, Paula.

    1. Thanks so much Corinne. Sending have a great week wishes your way sweet friend. {{Hugs}}
