The Good Morning Girls summer study is going through Proverbs 31. This week I was really impressed on how I should be planning my days carefully, but also planning ahead. I have many weeks where I feel like I'm doing all I can to keep up with the clutter, dishes, and some of the laundry, let alone thinking ahead about the bigger stuff. The bigger projects that never get done because I can't keep up. I have been really impressed by a friend of mine who has found the time to make several new home decorating improvements. She's taken the time to make new things she sees on Pinterest. I just don't even think that way - of taking the time for something fun and creative for the home. I wish I did!
God impressed on my heart this week the need to set monthly goals and plan my calendar better. I'm not starting big, but taking baby steps in the right direction. I started by putting on my calendar at the beginning of each month a block of time for planning and goal setting. I hope to do this every month. And then I'm going to divide my daily calendar in to sections for House chores, Work deadlines that I need to keep up with, Kids fun times planned in, etc. We'll see if this helps me look at the big picture more than cleaning up for just today.
