I have felt that I have lost my focus on my goals over the last few years. I’ve just tried to feel my way through the dailyness of life without accomplishing all that I have set in my heart of hearts to accomplish. I’ve become disorganized & disheveled. There has been some major crisis that have arisen in the last year that have really stolen my joy and left me floundering. So I’m setting my intention to FOCUS on the good things of life. The big and the small. Relationships: Spiritual & Earthly. Learning. Growth. I’m going to set some very specific goals for myself so that I can accomplish things I’ve only been talking about for the last year or two.


“So let us keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us.” Philippians 3:15, The Message


*one goal for the year is to read more. I’m horrible about starting five different books at once and then not finishing them. So for the next week my plan is to finish reading The Help. It really is such a good book. TTFN. I must go read!
