March Goals...

It is a beautiful morning...it's deceiving to look outside, because the sun is shining, the sky is bright, and it looks like a beautiful day to be outside...but it's currently 30* out there...  Later today it will be nice to be out...

Y'all.  It's MARCH!  Seriously, WHERE did January and February go?!?  The slowest months of the year are GONE and boy did they fly by!  March is definitely coming "in like a lion" for me, as I'm full of inspiration, energy, and excitement.  Spring fever much?  

I decided to switch to monthly goals instead of weekly to see if I like that any better or differently.  And, let me tell you -- I have some LOFTY goals for March.  This is a continual reminder...


As a planner, I struggle constantly to give up MY plans for GOD'S plans.  I'm continually learning how to balance the tension that is planning and living an "orderly" life, and letting go of those plans that I made to fulfill God's calling to me when it is different.  It's easy for me to get very discouraged and feel like a failure when I don't get EVERYTHING crossed off of my list.  But at the same time, it is good for me to have some direction and structure to keep me focused.  So...balance...
