Inspirational Thought for the Day

Determine that the thing can and shall be done,
and then we shall find the way.

-Abraham Lincoln


via Beliefnet

A great thought for a Monday morning in my book...what are the things this week that can and shall be done...what are my priorities for the week? Write them down, organize them, and then find a way to do them!

Before adding something to my list, ask myself, "Can this be done? Is it able to be accomplished this week? Does it need to be done this week? Why is this thing important?"

Check in periodically (ie. each evening?) on my progress. Pray for the strength and guidance I need to meet each challenge along the path.

Do the things on the list...they don't have to be earth shattering items, but just the small everyday tasks that fill my life. Completing these tasks with a sense of purpose, all the while offering them as acts of love for God and in His service, gives them all of the importance they need in my little world.

Thanks Abe!

Hi Cami! Steve, thanks for your kind note. This blog is relatively new and will hopefully grow and improve over time as I learn more about this new way of communicating the tons of ideas I've got rolling around in my head!

Next big plan/idea...Catholic Mom, the Podcast. I'm seriously looking into what would be required to do a once a week podcast featuring Catholic music, literature and just general great stuff. Stay tuned...it won't happen before mid September though.
Thanks for the links. I need all the support I can get!
