Pen Or Pencil?

What are your remaining goals for 2022? In life? All of us must have goals to thrive in this world. Some goals can be written down in pen. Others in pencil. The art of goal-setting requires tremendous discernment. We do need some goals that are etched in stone, no doubt about it. Other goals are less significant. An illustration from my life might be:

Pen goal: Continue to be active in life.

Pencil goal: Qualify for the Boston Marathon. 

The discernment process can be arduous at times, but at the end of the day you have to be intentional about living out your life to the best of your ability, to the glory of God. Continuing to pursue the gifts that God has given me is my number one priority right now. Being "retired" doesn't affect that goal in the least. However, I am confident in my decision to pursue other avenues of service in the coming months and years. 

Thank you, everyone, for your support and prayers through these 19 years of blogging. The adventure of daily blogging will continue. Why? Because I get to capture some pretty incredible moments in life, and yes, to share them with all of you. I love blogging and it fits my personality well. Bottom line: life is exciting, it's hard, it has its challenges but it also has its rewards. Cheers from this blogger, and may God grant us wisdom to know when to take up the pen and when to reach for the pencil.
