New Year, New goals.


Before writing out my new goals for the year I thought I would reflect on my goals for 2017. I just reread them and became quite disappointed with myself. Here's my goals from last year.

I want to surrender to Jesus every day. I want to wake to his presence and sleep in his calm. I want to read his word and hear his voice. I want to consult him on decisions within my home and family. I want to bring glory to God no matter the situation. I want him to pour out of me with all that I do and shine brightly through me to those who might be in the dark, on the fence, or brand new to JC. I'm going to print this out and put it on my mirror and make it my daily mantra for 2018. 

I do have a few more goals for 2017...

2017 Goals

My word that I want to concentrate on this year is INVEST. 

I want to invest myself in Jesus.
I want to invest in my marriage. (We are going to date more.)
I want to invest my time in my family.
I want to invest in my friendships.
I want to invest financially. (I have some saving goals...)
I want to invest in myself.  (I have to exercise the stress and my muffin top away)


Other Goals... 

No hospital stays for 2017 (or ever but let's take it one day at a time...) WE DID IT! We did 2017 without one hospital visit! Wesley did have surgery for his leg but not until Jan. 2, 2018! WOOHOO! 

2018 Goals... 


I want to surrender to Jesus every day. I want to wake to his presence and sleep in his calm. I want to read his word and hear his voice. I want to consult him on decisions within my home and family. I want to bring glory to God no matter the situation. I want him to pour out of me with all that I do and shine brightly through me to those who might be in the dark, on the fence, or brand new to JC.

Last year I chose a word to concentrate on, My word was invest and the only thing I did well was investing in a Financial planner.... 

This year my word to concentrate on is.... FOCUS. 

I want to focus on Jesus and who he is and what he is teaching me and doing in my life.
I want  to focus on my marriage. 
I want to focus on my family and how I am presenting Jesus to them - not just sharing the gospel but them seeing Jesus through me and my actions... and my words... and my patience... 
I want to focus on my friendships. (Marco Polo App is a great way to visit with friends even whey busy) 
I want to focus on saving. 
I want to focus on myself.... Focus on health- spiritual, physical and mental. 

Today I am focusing on Patience.... 

 Because this dog is driving me crazy.


God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix it.
