Blogger Friend School Assignment 12


Write out some goals that you would like to accomplish. These goals should include your personal goals, but also goals as a family.  While setting goals, try to write out small attainable rewards for each goal accomplished!

I am always setting goals in my life.  Some are easily attainable and others I have yet to see come to light.  There is a saying by Les Brown that comes to my mind that says, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you land among the stars.”  I sometimes set my goals for the moon and quite often land among the stars, which isn’t such a bad place to be.  I don’t often set long range goals because the list would go on for days so here are a few of my short term goals that I am continually working on.

1. To continue to seek God’s plan and purpose in my life and to carry it out in the way He would have me do so. This will help define my life.

2.  I would like to organize my time better.  The household manager that I’ve been working on and using has been a great help in that department and I have seen the fruits of it, but I still need a lot of work.

3.  To have more time to be alone with my husband.  His work schedule is rough and the only time we have together is right before we go to sleep at night.  This would strengthen our relationship.

4.  To be more disciplined in seeing that my kids complete their assigned household duties.  We struggle with them doing it right unless they are ‘sat’ on to do them. This would stop most of the nagging and complaining that goes on around here.

5.  As a family, I would like us to spend more time doing things outside of school; more outings and vacation time.  This would allow us to grow closer as a family.

There seems to be a running theme in these goals: TIME.  I think that my main goal this year should be to ‘make’ time for the things I find important and not to worry about the small stuff. 


Ecclesiastes 8:5-7Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment. Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him. For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?

    Praying for you and the goals you have set. May God bless you. Merry CHRISTmas!

    Your classmate,


    The verse was a blessing to me.

    I have found that Tiany's Monday Meanderings and my Whatever Weekends have both helped me in getting more things accomplished that I want to get accomplished!

    And I too wish my hubby and I had more alone time together. But my hubby's schedule makes it very difficult to get much time together. So I understand.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

    Managing our time is a big deal. I had to laugh when I read your goal of spending more time outside of the house with your family. One of my goals is going to be to do the opposite!

    Those are very worthy goals and I pray that you obtain them all. I completely understand about your husband. I am trying to figure out ways to have some alone time with mine. When he is home for a day I feel bad taking his time away from the kids to spend it with me.

    I don't think I acknowledge my goals enough. I am too day-to-day. Maybe this year, I'll actually make some resolutions….

    praying as you reach your goals.

    I so agree about the TIME thing! There never seems enough – or perhaps I'm not putting what time I do have to the best use? Will probably add that to my mental list of goals!

    Praying that all your goals are met! In the mean time, I wish you a Happy and Holy Christmas, Nadolig Llawen – (Welsh greetings!!),

    How true. It is indeed important to lay our time in God's hands to see how He wants us to best use it.

    Wow! Your son accomplished a lot in Boy Scouts. That encourage me. My son can't wait to get his Eagle.

    I like the perspective you've gained (time together) from writing down your goals. Isn't it funny how that happens? I pray you'll be able to manage a better schedule for more time together in the next year!


  11. Jocelyndixon says:

    Wow, great goals. This was an excellent assignments. Makes us think of what is really important and what we need to work on. I pray you get them all accomplished this coming year!

    My assignment:

    Oh and I LOVE your template! Cute!
