As I sketched out my outline for this week I prayed for a way to encourage you, to not only set goals for 2012, but for a way to implement your good intentions from January through December. I wasn’t sure how to do this but I know God is faithful when we pray and trust Him to answer.
Today as I read Paula Davis’, A Peace in the Puzzle of Life blog I recognized an answer to my prayer. Paula’s post titled, “Christmas Letdown?” triggered a thought for this series and looking at our New Year’s resolutions and goals.
Paula shares her perspective of carrying the Christmas generosity, love, and hope into our lives throughout the year, not just in December or the days surrounding Christmas.
“Let’s look ahead towards how we can carry Christmas with us throughout the coming year. Take a few minutes in the coming days to think about what kinds of things you and your family can do to bring the spirit of Christmas to others each month. Then make a plan…” Paula details a 3-step plan to achieve this goal through simple yet powerful thought to action process.
With Paula’s permission I’m sharing the link to her blog:
As you reflect on your goals, resolutions, and plans for 2012 I challenge you to write them down.
“Goals that are not written down are just wishes.”
Don’t dream for 2012…set goals.
What goals have you set for yourself this year? Feel free to share.
