Plan Your 2009
Our pastor always encourages us to start planning our goals, etc in December- before we get to Jan 1 and start out the year on the wrong foot. I love this idea. It is good to make goals and plans. Some people shun "new years resolutions" and say they get forgotten anyway. Hey- if you shoot at nothing....you will hit it!
We all got our books this Sunday- Search the Scriptures by Alan Stibbs. We are making plans as a church to read through the Bible in 3 years. This breaks the Bible down into about a chapter a day. Sounds like a good plan to me- especially since Dave and my 7 year old will be reading the same passage each day. I am sure it will encourage some good discussions.
I am making plans to sit down this week to write out some goals for this year- going through this Bible reading plan is at the top of the list. After that, who know...walk on the moon? Publish a book? Bake a loaf of bread? floss my teeth??- the possibilities are endless.
What is the feeling out there on goals for the new year? What would you like to accomplish in 2009?
