Planning, Not Resolving

Without a vision the people perish--Proverbs 29:18a

I am not making resolutions for the new year but I do want to have a vision for what I would like to accomplish with God's help--so here is my plan for 2013.

And my WORD for the YEAR is SEEK--

My scripture for the year is Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.



Plan for 2013
        *Set my alarm each day for at least 6 a.m. 
*Spend time in the morning first thing with God, quality and quantity. 
*Paint at the art studio every Monday. 
*Exercise every day in the mornings and before I leave the house. 
*Use this house cleaning schedule--click here for link. 
*Be faithful to my blog readers--I promised God when I started  in 2008 that I would write faithfully for five years--I have 5 months to go.  Finish strong and then consult God on his direction--keep writing blog or devote that time to something else.  Include one creative piece (poem or prose) every 5 to 10 posts.
*Get down on paper my favorite scriptures and why and how they helped me through the years. 
*Teach at the Ranch until God tells me otherwise.  Devote study and prayer time to become the best I can be for the residents and to give back to God. 
*Pray faithfully for my prayer list. 
*Keep a better prayer journal this year. 
*Practice calligraphy weekly. 
*Paint one watercolor a week no matter how small. 
*Pencil sketch one person or thing each week. 
        *Make healthier eating choices each day--try to make more good  choices per day than bad choices for sure.
*Spend one day biweekly studying photography.
