Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Like most people, I'm pretty much well on my way to keeping none of my new years resolutions. Normally this would make me feel sad, but I know that God will keep working on my character.

In the mean time, this is my new way of working on achieving what I want to get done. I have one project a month, and I have until the end of that month to FINISH THE PROJECT.

I'm really, really close to finishing January's. It was sewing all the badges on my brother's scout blanket, something that has been hanging over my head for about six or more months now. There were about 500 badges to sew on. I had done about 80 before January, and now I have 12 left to go!

My goal for February is to record a CD of traditional celtic music. The proceeds will go to help Bushikori in Uganda.

My goal for March is to finish volume 1 of Balancing the Sword. I'm currently in Proverbs, and while I am still going through it even now, March is the month when I'm going to focus on this.

I haven't decided for the rest of the year... I'll leave that for closer to the months themselves. But at the moment, this is working really well. I mean, I've sewn about 400 badges on in 30 days!

So that's my new method of goal setting and reaching. Hopefully this is going to help me focus my energies and achieve a whole lot this year!
