Oh my – it’s already November! Do you know it is only 57 days until January 1st?
Before I left for Canada, I pulled out my 2008 goals for a check-up. I know what you are thinking – Hmmm, I don’t even know where my 2008 goals are. That’s usually what I say come November, but not this year. I’ve kept them handy and spent time reviewing them quarterly.
It’s amazing what focus can do. Looking over those goals I quickly noticed that there were some I was still far from accomplishing, but it was so awesome to see the ones listed that I actually DID accomplish. Woo hoo!
Have you started thinking about 2009 and what you’d like to accomplish? Start dreaming. Start making notes. Start getting prepared. I’m one of those runners who has to psych myself up to run for a LONG while before I begin the race. I’m preparing now and looking forward to what God puts on my heart in the next 57 days to run towards in 2009.
I know leadership will be part of my learning process for 2009. I’m finishing up reading The 360 Degree Leader by John C. Maxwell and I’ll share thoughts later. Incredible book!
Today though, I am catching up! It’s always great to get away, but the catch up time when you come home is never fun. I loved my time away with hubby! Five days in Canada was just right. Coming home to south Texas to unthaw was even better. Just making it home was an answer to prayer. Ask me how I traveled out of the country with no passport!
Here’s a couple of pics! Words would not even describe the beauty of that part of the country. God is so amazing, creative and artistic! God didn’t put these colors here in south Texas. This is the beautiful country side of the Niagara River.
