" I WILL NOT TAKE PRIDE IN BEING NEEDED BY PEOPLE BUT IN BEING WANTED BY GOD"

Ready, Set, Goals...

Well, to tell the truth I have not started on my goals for the new year yet. But there is no time like the present. So this is a draft. I am sure I will change some things around and add to later after I think on it more. So here goes.

1. I want my prayer life to move to a deeper level. I believe out of this I will become the disciple, wife, and mother that God is calling me to be. I would love to have 3-4 times a day that I will spend in focused prayer. Through this I will grow closer to my King and there is nothing better than that.

2. I would like to be more disciplined when it comes to teaching home school. Having more set times for things to happen and more lessons plans to follow. I always start good but never finish well. I want to do better this year. If I can make this work we might be able to get more work done and less time running in circles.

3. I want to date my husband more. I want to learn again how to view him more as my husband and not like just the guy that help with the kids. I want us to have more moments just for us. I want our relationship to be help together by love not our kids.

4. I want to play more, run more, and laugh more. This will bring a happy, health, and full life to me.

So I will be adding more to this list....

5. I would like to learn to sew this year.

I wish my hubby and I could have more alone time together. But with his work schedule, it's hard to find that time. Before his schedule change with one of his jobs, we used to spend time together after the children went to bed. A lot of times, we'd play cards together. It was fun and we enjoyed the time together. But we don't get to do that very much at all these days (in fact, it's rare that we get to do that...) I miss it.

Hope you have a great week!

Great goals. I think we all have the same problems and aspirations as you have set. May the Lord help you reach these goals so that you will reap the benefits. Merry Christmas and a blessed new year.

Wow, after reading a couple assignments I feel kind of less spiritual for sure! I guess that means I really need to work on those areas!

I can completely relate to all your goals. I will be praying that you accomplish them all. I wish I could have some time with my husband too. I feel guilty asking him to spend time with me instead of the kids since he is so rarely at home.
