Working The Plan: Last Week of August 2014

Working the plan

 

With school starting up again and a need to fill my days full without overfilling them or forgetting things I think it’s time to start these posts back up!

Yesterday I sat down and made a new (pretty!) little form to fill in my days and plans! Thinking maybe I’ll change up the colors each week or so just because it’s easy to do.

I like something I can write on- somehow I think through my week better with pen in hand than at the keyboard.  I write it down and then tape it to my white board in the kitchen. The children read it and keep me on track!

One thing I used to do (and am returning too) is including the Proper Collect for the week on my weekly plan as a reminder, prayer and something to meditate on. We’re still in Ordinary Time so the prayer this week is for unity in the Church.

 

Grant, we beseech thee, merciful God, that thy Church,
being gathered together in unity by thy Holy Spirit, may
manifest thy power among all peoples, to the glory of thy
Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and
reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world
without end. Amen.

 

Won’t you join in with your own plans? You can download my form [download id=”42″], make your own or just dot something down on the back of an envelope!

Let’s be intentional, encourage one another and take joy!
