Goals and such…

New Year! I wrote down several goals I had for this year…not resolutions…because I don’t think those last. But goals? …those are always good to have. So, I wrote them on a notepad and I’m thinking sharing them with others, whomever may actually read this, would be a good idea. Some accountability. Something “solid” to “hold” my goals in place. I don’t know…just thought it might help. Oh and…one of them happens to be related to posting on this here fine blog.

2013 Life Goals
1) Run another 5K … I almost “died” last July running my first ever, but I’d like to try again.
2) Learn 3 songs on the ukelele … memorize them so I can take my uke with me someplace remote and still be able to sing and play.
3) Read a book (classic?) … just one because I don’t want to “over-do” it. I’d love to read more, but I have a terrible habit of starting a book and not finishing it then starting another and another and another and … you get the point.
4) Share Christ with someone new.
5) Make homemade rolls or bread … Mom always did this but I’ve never done it on my own. And I simply love the smell.
6) Have a small-ish dinner party … love to have friends over and I don’t do it enough.
7) Personal goal … already accomplished!!! WOOT!
8) Write a poem … it’s been a year or more since I’ve written. Time to start.
9) Pay off credit card completely … it’s not a huge debt, but it needs to be a clean slate.
10) Love more like Christ … I don’t honestly know how to “accomplish” this but I want to be reminded of it daily. And sometimes, with some people or some situations, it’s a tough task.
11) Blog once a month … January. Check.
12) Memorize 10 Bible verses … not a skilled Scripture memorizer so I’ve started on the first one this month. I wrote it on a piece of paper and stuck it in my car, and every time I get in, I pull down the paper and read it. So far this is what I’ve got memorized … “Who is a God like you, who forgives sins and pardons the transgressions of the remnant of His inheritance. You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. … ” Micah 7:18-19.

That’s all for now.
