ThreeGoals-AlternativeIt’s Thursday again.  Time for an update…


1  Set a time for meeting with that new spiritual director I’ve contacted.

2  Attend a Saturday night function at the church that promises to be uplifting.

3  Finish up PR for sale at church, getting signs updated and posted in the community.


I gotta say that I did really well at my goals this week. I’m super excited to report I completed them all!  Yay, me!!!

Goal No. 1 DONE!  I called the SD like I said I would. A win!  The bad part:  I got his voicemail. 😦  This guy is super busy helping people, which means it may take a while to get an appointment with him. It might even take a while to get a call-back from him, but what’s that they say about busy people?  If you want something done, ask a busy person?  Yeah, I’m asking, and I will let you all know when that call comes in and the appointment is set. For now, it is enough to have hit my goal and made the call.  Again, Yay!!!

Goal No. 2 Done and DONE!!!  I absolutely loved Sharon Glasgow and learned a lot from her session on Saturday night two weeks ago, but her Sunday message blew me away.  All about hope and belief in miracles, and the power in those big fists of our Savior.  POWER people!  Resurrection power!  It was so good, from beginning to end, and Sharon is on a crusade to get and stay healthy, too, which is right down my alley.  I want to share with you some of what Sharon gave to us, and the best way to do that, I think, is by sharing the link to her website, so here it is.  Enjoy!!!

Goal No. 3 DONE! DONE! AND DONE!   I have people lined up to help with the move-out for the big sale and those people have trucks at the ready.  A little snag occurred in my planning when I found out that the place our event organizer had chosen to send our left overs wasn’t willing to accept adult clothing donations.  What???!  That’s the majority of what we have left after a sale.  I immediately went to work finding another venue for the clothing donations, and YES, I found one!  We will be heading in two directions after the sale to make drop-offs for left overs and that is additional work I didn’t expect to have to do, but its okay.  Today is the first day of the sale and I’m excited about the potential. I love this event and will be on the “sales floor” bright and early Saturday morning, pushing hard for those last few items to fly out the door.  !00% of the proceeds for this sale help the disadvantaged in our community.  I’ll say it again–I love this Sale!!!

[did you see what I did with the exclamation point there. Yeah, I love exclamation points!!!!!]  LOL


Now, for a new week’s list of goals…


1  Sale, Sale, and SALE. All day Saturday I will help with the sale, the move-out, the transportation of donations left over, and the clean up of the facility.  A full day, indeed!

2  I will make sure to bake some oatmeal on Sunday afternoon, to have for breakfast this week. I have been slipping in this area, but I will revive the practice of daily oats in the a.m.

3  I will follow-up with the spiritual director, calling again if I don’t hear from him and making arrangements to sit down with him, at least once, to go over my needs.

I’m excited for how this weekend’s activities might turn out.  I hope you are excited about your weekend, too.

Why is goal-setting important to you?  Do you volunteer your time, and if yes, when, where, and how?
