March comes in like a lion!

[February Goals] RECAP

Verse of the month: Matthew 6:25-34

'Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.'"

I confess I did not meditate and soak this verse in as much as I did last month's. That is something I hope to do better this coming month. It did, however, birth an idea. Details to come! 

Word(s) of the month: enjoy and love

I think these words were very clear and evident. I enjoyed so much this month and loving others was just what this heart needed to do! 

Random - 
  1. Spreadin' the love! I'm purposing to reach out to at least one person with some act of intentionality every day. This wasn't as successful as I had hoped. The month quickly got away from me being busy with a lot of things. I did get a good portion of my ideas done but not all. I hope to still finish the list even if it isn't when I planned to.
  2. Weather and time permitting I'm hoping to put in at least 2 hours of walking a week. I hurt my knee so running is out (for now!) but I want to maintain the walking! I know that I got in a good portion of time walking. I didn't count. I was given a BellaBeat for my birthday (thanks mom!) so I hope to be able to chart it better. 
  3. Work up to a minute plank! This was a success and I am so proud! I have downloaded a plank app and I am going to take a step back and complete the advanced challenge through that, it starts at 30, and work my way up to longer! 
What was a good thing that happened this month? 
My nephew was born! WashingtonBear! Perfect little bundle! 

No, his name isn't just is when Aunt Hottie is calling him! 

What entertainment was good this month?
We restarted Christy. I mean, classic! 

What book was great this month?
Would I be cheating if I had the same answer as last month?

What food was good this month?
My birthday lunch! Yum!!! 

What did I let go of this month?
  • another couple pounds
  • 3 bags of clothes
  • my need for caffeine
What did I gain this month?
  • the ability to do a minute long plank
  • an aloe vera plant
  • a double ear infection and a nasty cold that won't go away
On to March! 

[March Goals]

Verse of the month: Matthew 7:7-11

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!"
