Stop & Go

Today’s theme for Six Word Friday is Stop & Go:

STOP!  Be quiet. . . wait upon God.

Go. . . when the timing is right.

My January goals are doing good, but needing some adjustments.  I’m not able to spend three hours a week organizing and decluttering, but I’ve gotten in a solid one hour each week.  I think that will be good enough.  Instead of ending this goal in March though, I’ll go through June.  That’s still less hours overall, but I should make a big difference in the piles of stuff.

I’m enjoying my class at the Digital Scrapbooker on making up a photo album about myself, but I’m not getting any real traction on it.  That might have been a mistake for this year.

I’ve been working on my book, keeping up my blogs, and continuing to take photos (thankfully not every day though).  Things are lining up for my writing and doors are opening that never existed in the past.

The dogs are enjoying their extra cuddles at night.  There has been some decrease in the blogs.  I’ve been unusually tired after work this week, so by the time I enjoy the warm bodies and the warm fire, I’m ready for bed.

And as I’ve written earlier, I’m doing my daily devotions using Jesus Calling.  That’s led to a variety of prayers, contemplation, and some attitude adjustments.

That’s the Friday update!  The beagle is back at the door waiting to be let out – again.  You never know what changed since 15 minutes ago.

Over at A Daily Life, Kate from Believe Anyway has some questions for you to use and an example from her own blog of writing about when you knew you were loved.

    • Your comment is so right on. It’s really hard to do though, especially for those who have such minimal patience. I’ve improved in that area, but it remains an acquired skill and not something natural.

    • It makes a huge difference, but oh is it hard to discern. Thanks for visiting – I’ve been trying to visit others who are participating as well.

  1. Sounds like you are keeping on track with your goals. Sometimes they need a little adjustment but that’s OK. If you get your decluttering done by June, you will be miles ahead of me!

    • The decluttering is going slowly, but I am happy getting an hour a week. We actually saw a difference from it last weekend in the exercise area in the attic.

  2. It sounds like your plan is working pretty well. Loved your comment about the beagle, and what might have changed in 15 minutes. Thanks for the smile.

    • I’m glad you liked it. I always enjoy on the blogs I read when a real life comment gets tossed in.

      The beagle does that. He does a grid search of the yard with quite a frequency. He can’t stand being in and wondering what changed out there. And often there is a new bunny trail to howl over.

    • It has been a month of “go” – you’re right! What works for me is to just get moving. Eventually I figure out what will and will not get done or be a priority (like the photo album).

  3. Love the colors and patterns in your sky photo.

    None of us can do it all. Set your priorities and I hope that helps you feel that doing so puts things into their place.

    Best to you on those new doors.
