Priorities in Order...Goals Have Been Established...Time to Refine Goals

Today was a good day.  No one in our house had to be anywhere until 12:30 p.m. today, so we all got to sleep in and relax today.  I had a wonderful time of quiet this morning.  Raymond Pert came over to say goodbye before he headed to Spokane to have dinner with IEG and her husband.  RP heads back to Eugene tomorrow.

I spent some time organizing the Christmas stuff in our basement storage room.  Then we put it all away, and it is in order and ready for next year.  It felt good to have that done.

Goodbye Santa Claus, hello Snowmen.  Now the living room is full of cute smiling snowmen.  I guess if there isn't snow outside, there is a little bit of winter wonderland inside the house.

PKR and I made a "date" at 6 p.m. to work on our priorities and goal setting.  For about 2 hours we sat and went through our lists, refining them, and discussing them, and putting things on a calendar.  We now have our Priorities and Goals set.  Tomorrow, we meet again at 6 p.m. to break the goals down even more and set some deadlines or put some timelines to them.

It has taken us 25 years of marriage, but maybe we are finally on to something!!  Who says you can't teach an old dog (or perhaps a couple of middle-aged dogs) new tricks?  I think we may be learning something from this!!

One of my goals is to write in my blog at least once a week.  Well, it is January 7th and I've already written three times this week.  Let's hope the ball keeps rolling!!

I mentioned earlier that PKR and I were also doing a Daniel Fast, a time to fast and pray about our lives, our church, and whatever else God seems to want to show us.  I found a book online that is titled "The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast" by Kristen Feola.  I bought it for my new Nook Color, and it has been a wonderful resource this week.  Each day is a different devotional reading, plus it explains what a Daniel Fast is, and also gives some great recipes.  What a blessing!!

I'm looking forward to church tomorrow.  We had a good Worship Team time last week.  It seems like renewal is in the air in many areas of my life, and Worship Team is one of them.  I can't wait to see how God uses our team this year. 

Another goal is to get to bed by 10 p.m. each night, so I had better start getting ready for bed.  Can't wait to see what is ahead tomorrow!!

I love the idea of the goal setting meetings. My husband did sit and chat with me for about an hour this evening. I had to bounce some story ideas off someone! It was nice to get the feedback.

Also, love your snowmen! I still have Christmas up. Didn't decorate til Christmas eve, so wanted to enjoy it a bit longer. So happy to see you posting so much!
