21 Day Challenge

Today is day 1 of Rhonna's 21 day Challenge.
My journal is titled, Calling All Angels, I was inspired by a song on Rella's blog with the same title.
The reason for the 21 day challenge is that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, or to make something a reality.
I have 3 goals I will be working on: 1.Read my Bible daily, Seek God, and pray for others daily. 2. Get fundraiser planned and raise enough money for John's wheelchair ramp and household modifications. 3. Eat moderately and eat healthy food , exercise every single day no matter what. Get started on losing the weight I want to lose this year.
I made the journal I am using, by using a plain composition notebook, and then covering it with craft paper, and then adding letters. Then decorating the first page by using watercolors , and then gluing down paper lace and writing out my goals.
I am really looking forward to doing this. I had to take my feeling of being overwhelmed and turn it into something constructive. I have a plan now, and I will accomplish it. ~ Determined Nita~

Your journal is lovely. I write everyday in my journal. It has helped me so much when life has become difficult. I was pleased to hear your church family is supportive. The God of my understanding does listen to my every fear, my rants and raves and my dispair. Know that you are loved.

Dear Nita,
your journal is as lovely and practical as you. I love your list. It sounds so like things that we all need to be reminded of.
All things are possible to those who believe.
