This is my post of goals I had for 2009. I'm going to look back at these today and tomorrow I'll share some goals for 2010.
--prayer. I've gone back to a written prayer journal this year. This works well for me. I have written many of your names in my prayers this year and am thankful to see God answer!
--Bible study. I have done some word studies at the beginning of the year and read some study guides as well. One was about the book of John. This is an area I want to change and improve this year.
--budget. We completed FPU in 2009 AND paid off our debt except for the house. :)
--book reading. I did complete 50+ books this year! Two of those were audio books which I found out I enjoyed. I did not read a classic as was on my goal list last year. I did read a book for continuing education credit.
--laugh. I noticed more often times to stop and laugh and not be rushed on to the next thing. This has been great to be intentional about laughing and silly times!
--verse memorization. I did well part of the year on memorizing the verses word for word. Some weeks I didn't memorize the verses of the week, just read over them.
--be earth friendly. I've collected so many reusable bags that I normally don't have to use any plastic when I go grocery shopping. I even remember to take them in!! Caleb always tells the clerk (when he's with me), "we have our own bags." I have found a good use for plastic bags though too....we give them to the food pantry and they use them quickly. We put out our recycle tub on Thursdays too.
--organize/declutter. This continues to be an area I need to work on! We made some progress in getting rid of some stuff but we still have too much.
--get to bed earlier. Another area to work on....sometimes we do good and go to bed at a good time, other nights I talk too much!!
Have a day of blessings!
