My First Quarter Progress Report

I wrote a long and detailed post TWICE. Once the Internet Explorer hung up and I lost it when I had to exit out. The second time the 'saving' button kept turning itself on each time I stopped typing and when I hit 'Publish Post' it said unable to post...and when I returned to the post only a few lines were actually saved.

I'm going to chalk this up as a God intervention. I felt strange about posting it in the first I guess I know why. So, with much less information, I am going to try this one more time and if this doesn't work. I will let it lie!

Do you remember back in January when I asked you guys that if I didn't update you on how my goals were going to ask me? So, why haven't you been asking?

Yeah, that's what I thought! (Grin!)

Well, if you read Friday's post you already know that I didn't keep to my original intentions of making new goals each month. I have decided to set aside three months at a time for each focus area. It wasn't a conscience decision at first...but as time went on, I knew that I needed more than one month to work through my Spiritual Health goals.

As Julia Cameron says in her book The Right to Write, '...ninety days, (the length of time the brain needs to "groove" a new neurological pattern)'

My three goals were:

1. To attend worship service every Sunday.

2. To join a small group Bible study

3. To find a new home church in 2011

In addition to these three goals, I personally set a goal to be more consistent in keeping my quiet time.

Without the consideration of goal #3 (as I still have 9 months to make that decision), my grade would be a 77% (C).

I haven't been able to keep up the Daily Routines or the nightly goals journal...but maybe those will be for a later time.

Next quarter's focus: Relationships.

I'm still working out the details of those goals, but I will let you know when I know. That is, if this thing will allow me to post!

Thanks for being my accountability group in this season of life!
