Hello June / by Rachel Nordgren

Linking up with The Tiny Twig's June Goals post!

I'm just going to state the obvious here, but can you believe that 2014 is halfway over?! Don't you feel like it was just yesterday that we were packing up Christmas decorations (which some people in our neighborhood have *ahem* yet to do) and cheering in the new year?

Maybe you're in the same boat as I am...a bit adrift in this first week of June, with New-Years-Resolution-Fervor well washed away. Maybe you set sail into 2014 with the loftiest of goals, and you feel like you haven't made an inch of progress. It's alright. There's a whole six months left in this year (and a lot can happen in six months!), and it's never too late for a fresh start.

I've started the last three months by linking up with Hayley Morgan over at The Tiny Twig and her 2014 Goal Setting series. First of all, it's a great way to intentionally mark out what I want to happen in the next month. Second of all, it's really encouraging to know that I'm not the only one who doesn't get it all done. Grace not perfection, right?

Speaking of grace, here are some beautiful things God did in May... 1. Final Grades: 3 A's and 1 B!! Huzzah! 2. Hans is done with teaching for the summer <3 3. Our epic garage sale. 4. She Reads Truth's Nehemiah Study. 5. Taking Banjo "running" (does a 14 minute mile count as a run?)

How did I do on my May Goals? 1. Study the attributes of God Done! Such good reminders of His character! 2. Plan a mini summer vacation for Hans and I Done! We just need to nail down dates! 3. Make our office lovely + simple We're getting there. Just waiting on frames from Ikea :) 4. { Secret Goal that I'm not sharing with the Internet :) } Done! 5. Look into IRA accounts and other investments No :( Every time I thought about doing it, I got distracted. Good thing retirement is a ways off, though!

June Goals 1. Memorize Romans 8. 2. Find and commit to a Couple's Bible Study. 3. Try a new fitness class at the gym. 4. { More Secret Goal Stuff } 5. ACTUALLY research IRA accounts and other investments!

What goals do YOU have this month, sweet friend?!

Under Grace, Rachel
