Goal # 2

     My first goal this year was spiritual as I want to make my walk and relationship with God my first priority. My second goal is family and my relationship with my husband and family. I also want this relationship to be stronger.
     My plan to do that is to spend more time with them.  You spend time on what is important to you and I want them to know they are important to me.  To achieve this I started looking at ways I could do this.  I am sure these won't be the only things but they are a starting point.
     Specific goals under this are:
               1) Bi-weekly date night with my hubby-these may be simple or more extravagant but will be time and plans just for us.  I also want to just make spending time with him more of a priority with him even if I have to watch a movie or do something that is not my first choice but is his.
               2) We have family supper every Sunday night together but I want to go further with this.  I want to have at least bi-weekly game nights to get together and have fun.
               3) This is Stephen's last semester of school before graduation and I want to not only focus on doing the required work but that we truly enjoy and treasure this time together.
               4)I am starting a positive reinforcement thing with the grands when they are at my house. I know kids need discipline but God has been laying on my heart to not only discipline disobedience but reward more on obedience.
     Some of these may seem silly or things that should just be done.  I can honestly say though that some of them have gotten lost in my business of life and I want to get back to who and what is truly important to me. What about you?  Any goals or plans you have that you want to share?
God bless,

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
