2008 Goals

I have been thinking and praying for several days now about what goals I should have for the New Year. I would have liked to have posted these yesterday, but we were visiting with family. Today would have been my Dad's birthday, so it's a good day as well. :) I figured that by actually posting them on my blog I will be more intentional about keeping/working on them.

  • Monthly date night.
  • Read through couple's devotional.
  • Intentional intimacy.

  • Game nights.
  • Family vacation.

  • Eat healthy.
  • Lose ten pounds.

Ministry

First of all, thank you for your prayers. I've already feel it coming. Thank you for your encouragements. I just thumbed through my Bible verse journal and found Hebrews 12:11 "No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." Again, thank you for your encouragements.

Your goals. Very practical, very thorough and precise. I've just finished mine and ready to publish it, but now I may go back and revise it.
