MY PRIORITIES FOR 2008  

 

God, Husband, Children, Home

 

I will continue to have the same priorities, but I need to add myself to the list.  I really feel and see the results of not ever making myself a priority.  

 

GOD – SPIRITUAL LIFE

But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.  – Isaiah 40:31

 

Goals for 2008: 

·         Time Daily with God’s Word

·         Continue my attendance of my Wed Night Disciple Group

 

PHYSICAL LIFE  (TAKE CARE OF SELF)

Medically I have had a fantastic year.  My asthma and weight are under great control.  I am very happy of my progress on those goals from last year.  I read 35 books last year, which was really good considering I didn’t finish a book in October or December. 

 

Goals for 2008: 

·         Make at least 30 minutes a day of me time – (reading)

·         Reading Goal – read 36 books next year and 12 off of my own shelves. 

·         Maintain my weight below my LIFETIME weight of 133.

·         Establish a better sleep pattern – up by 6:00 am each morning. 

 

HOME LIFE

 MARRIAGE

This is my beloved, and this is my friend.  – Song of Solomon 5:16

 

Goals for 2008:  Date Night Once a Month

 

 CHILDREN

Motherhood is a privilege, and our children our crowning glory. –  (1 Timothy 2:15) 

Be generous with praise – cautious with criticism.

 

Goals for 2008:  Continue Family Movie Night each Friday during the school year. 

 

I am very happy with how each of our children are doing.  Each one of them is making great progress on their areas of need.   I really don’t have a specific parenting goal this year.

 

HOMEMAKING

She watches over the ways of her household.  – Proverbs 31:27
 Every wise woman builds her house but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.  Proverbs 14:1

 

In 2007 I had a pretty good system and handle on this area of my life.   I need to put a little effort into getting back on track. 

 

Goals for 2008:

·         Complete Bedtime and Morning Routines each day

·         Dishes washed each night

·         Bake at least twice a month. 

 

FINANCIAL LIFE  – (FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY)

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousnes, and all these things shall be added to you.  – Matthew 6:33

 

We have done very well with paying extra towards are debts in 2007.   I want to continue that with a long-term goal of living Debt Free. 

 

Goals for 2008

  • Make and Take a Lunch everyday to work
  • Continue Weekly Budget and Debt Repayment Program (Debtproofliving.com)
  • DO NOT buy books – utilize the Ramsey and Dakota Cty Library systems

 

SOCIAL LIFE (FAMILY/FRIENDS)

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.  – Proverbs 17:17

Do not forsake your own friend. – Proverbs 27:10

 

Goals for 2008

  • Send Birthday cards to Family and Friends
  • Write one letter a month.
  • Blog at least weekly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That is a run down of my priorities for 2008.  Of course I would not be sucessful if I was to think I could accomplish each of these at the same time.  Later I will come up with my priorities that I want to focus on first this year.
