A few goals for July

 So we're nine days into July and it's time that I set a few goals.  We arrived home the night of July 3, so that's why I'm a bit behind with setting goals for this month.  I will say, however, that since getting back I feel more energetic and ready to tackle some things that had seemed overwhelming previously.  So here goes:

* Memorize at least 4 Bible verses and review some older ones
* Do the July Scripture writing plan, Rest for the Weary, with Rachel Wojo
* Post in my blogs as often as possible, hopefully posting daily for Christmas in July at my Christmas blog
* Continue our discipleship study with new believers
* Continue to help our widowed friend Terry with the challenges of life in general

* Get to bed by 9 pm each night  
* Pay much more attention to drinking enough water each day
* Read several books 
* Complete some estate responsibilities 
* Work on the cottage we are fixing up
 * Walk and/or exercise at least 4 times each week
* Get back into Flylady's homemaking zones of the week
* Do something creative each day
* Continue planning for family birthday gifts and crafting any handmade ones
* Spend a little time on some UFO craft projects
* Redouble my efforts in stocking my Etsy shop and continuing to sell vintage items
* Write at least 4 encouraging notes to friends and family
* Plan a getaway with my hubby
* Help and encourage my local daughter as I'm able 
* Continue to encourage and support my hubby as he works through a pastoral search for our church
* Continue to sort out and declutter my dad's house, hopefully finding a buyer for the older, bulkier vintage things and a few odds and ends of furniture
* Plan meals with a greater emphasis on healthy eating
HEALTHY HABITS FOR JULY:  Drink more water/get more sleep/walk regularly
MY WORD FOR 2020: Diligence 

We will see how I do!


  1. Amazing list of goals. May God give you the strength to accomplish them in His time. Glad you had a good vacation...hoping to hear about that too! Praying for your church to find the right Pastor to lead His flock. God knows who and when. Have a blessed week. That's the best goal of all!

    1. Thanks, Pamela. Please do keep praying for our pastoral search. As you said, God knows who and when.

      Yes, I'm still hoping to blog about our vacation. Hopefully this month!

  2. Your list is always ambitious, but they say to aim high. Lately, I'm doing well to get the bed made and the dishes done.

    1. Yes, I always like to aim high. I'm finding a bit of renewed energy this month and it's been good. The house clean-out is nearly done!
