October Goals

Image found here
School started this month for hubs.  It's been both good to be back in a Fall routine, but tough at the same time because it means I have to share my husband with the library.  We've had a few days of crisp, Fall weather which has been a welcomed surprise {since there aren't really seasons in Southern California}.  I have even managed to pick up a few PSL's as a special treat.

Anyway, I figured I would try something new and share my goals each month.  Even though we're midway through October, here's what I'm working on:

Schedule dentist appointments for me and hubs
Read Start 
Write outline for a performance management manual at work
Buy mums and a pumpkin for our patio
Order Christmas cards
Participate in Strong Marriages Successful Ministries class
Make bed everyday
Exercise twice a week
Clean out my closet 

What about you?  Any goals you're hoping to accomplish before the end of this year?

Lovely Thoughts

When I was in fourth grade I memorized this verse in Missionettes {it was a Bible class for girls...yes, the name is a bit cheesy}, and I really believe the words were written on my heart.  Over the past twenty years or so this scripture comes back to mind every once in a while.  I've been thinking a lot about these words the past couple of weeks and so desperately wanting to live by them.  

It has been a surprisingly difficult task for both me and hubs to think on the lovely, true, excellent things, but we are working on developing this discipline.  For us, it's a process of reprogramming ourselves to think positively, speak positively and be full of thanksgiving.

Tonight I'm going to hang this print somewhere in our house where we see it often.  Sometimes we just need a visible reminder.

P.S. I downloaded this beautiful print for free from French Press Mornings.
