Dreams and Goals

I have been watching the Republican National Convention on CSPAN this week.  There have story after story of Americans starting their own business in order to provide a better life for their family. Stories of immigrants who came to America because of what our country had to offer.  To chase dreams.  To set goals.  To succeed.  Stories of children being told by parents that they can be and do anything the set out to do.  Stories of Americans living the success of their realized dreams and goals.

I am proud to be an American where I  worship God, speak freely, live peaceably and raise my children in a way that I believe is right.  I thank God that I can live a life of realized dreams.  I am glad that if I don't like how my life is, I have the ability and freedom to make the necessary to changes to turn things around.

I've been assessing my life and I've been looking at 5 years from now.  I have a list of dreams of things I'd like to accomplish within the next five years.  I look at it frequently. I pray over it and thank the Lord for his provision and blessings.

Here are a few from my list:

1. Maintain a loving, safe, comfortable home when my children can bring their friends home to play.
2. Write a song of worship unto the Lord - lyrics and melody.
3. Encourage woman and girls in their life's journey.

What dreams and goals do you have for yourself that you would like to see realized five years from now?

Enjoying my life,
