Simplifying My Goals

I have updated my goals list so that it takes some of the pressure off! Instead of "Lose 10 pounds", it now says "Eat Right". Instead of "read Bible through by 12/31/07", it now says Read Bible/Devotion every day". I also realized that reading the Bible and having a quiet time each day should be at the top of the list and I changed some of the other goals to better reflect my needs and wants. I am still working on this.

This week I am reading the Book of Esther, along with Matthew. I still plan to finish reading all the way through the Bible. I'll just keep plugging along. It may take a year and a month (or 2 :o) ) !

I have also made a lot of progress in finishing quilting the border of the baby quilt. I would like to finish the quilting and get the binding on it this weekend! If I get that done, I'll post a picture of it here! I'm itching to get back on that NC State Quilt!

It is amazing how much you can get done on a project by doing it in small pockets of time. 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there really make a difference. Crystal over at Biblical Womanhood is knitting a baby blanket this way!

As long as I stay motivated, I can keep working toward accomplishing my goals!
