Setting God-Given Goals

"Create in me a pure heart, God,

Give me back the joy of your salvation.
Keep me strong by giving me a willing spirit.
Then I will teach your ways to those who do wrong,
and sinner will turn back to you..."
Psalm of David 51:10-13

This is such a good reminder for this new year. In fact, I'm copying it down in my help me in my goal setting for the months to come.

It is true, people don't plan to fail, they just don't plan.

Blessings on your new year, dear Charlotte.
