Welcome to March! Oh my gosh, it's MARCH. March is the best month:
- Spring break
- St. Patrick's Day
- MY BIRTHDAY
- St. Joseph's Day
- Spring is just around the corner
- There was always a cute little lamb to symbolize March for kids and lambs are just so cute!
Goal setting was kind of weird for this month, since lent starts in 4 days. But I went back to my mantra and focused on what I wanted to do to make this a reality in March, regardless of the fact that lent was just around the corner.
If I'm being honest with myself, the "more Jesus" portion of this theme went away for awhile. It wasn't intentional - and that's 100% the problem. If I'm not intentional with my time for God, then it stops being a priority for me. I always want Jesus to be my first priority.
So March is all about more Jesus. In every moment of every day. Specifically,
1. Committing to my holy half hour. Like getting there right at 10:30 and not leaving until 11:00.
2. Making 3 additional visits to the Blessed Sacrament each week.
3. Making it to daily Mass 4/5 days of the week. I mean, we have a chapel with daily Mass in our office. I have no reason not to go as often as my work schedule allows it!
4. Getting in the habit of practicing the presence of God.
These goals are habits that I have slacked off on recently. I don't want to slack, I don't want to let Jesus to become an after thought. So in March, I'm focusing on more of Jesus, just in time for lent.
Tell me, what are your goals for March?
