Goal Number Two: Daily Quiet Time

I know, I know......this probably should have been goal number 1, but with my lack of sleep I often found myself dozing during my quiet time. So....had to hit the sleep issue first.

But I think Goal #2 will be pretty easy for me because I'm not changing a lot. I'm simply going to pick up reading the bible where I left off. The downside is that I really hoped to get through the entire bible this year, but since I've waited 40 years to try, I don't think God will mind a few extra months. : )

One thing I will change is the timing. I had gotten to the point where I loved having my quiet time first thing in the morning, but that doesn't really work with our lifestyle anymore. Unless I want to get up even earlier, which I don't. So....I'm going to change my time to right after breakfast. School is out next week, so that schedule should work great.

Pretty easy-breezy, huh? I'll hit goal #3 tomorrow. (It's the exercise one. Sigh....)

Good luck with your goals Tracy, my quiet time is in the evening after all of my loved ones are tucked into bed :) It does cause me to stay up a little later then I should, but I NEED that time to unwind :)

I have my quiet time early morning...I don't know if it comes through in my writing...but I am a I am always up at like 5am. So I get about an hour and a half before the kiddos wake for the day.

I love how you are evaluating your life and noting what works, what doesn't, and then tweaking it. That is a phenomenal quality.
