In the last post I shared a sample of priorities. These help me focus on what is truly important and things that need to follow what is truly important. Here again is the list that helps me.
God: Without Him, I am nothing, with Him - "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me".
Husband: He is my highest human priority. During mothering years,it is a challenge putting him first. But, I was a wife before I was a mother and when the children are on their own, I will again be a wife. So, he is way up there on the list!!
Children: Children are a blessing from the Lord. He has given them to me and it is my duty to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This is a high calling and their needs should be above other things that may need attention.
Home: A home does not "just happen". It takes work, structure, order, love etc. And of course lots of time!!
Church: After my family, my church family hold some of my dearest relationships. A church is made up of people and to function needs participation and people to be doing the things that need to be done. So, I try to be as active in my church as possible.
I'll stop here, but in the days to come want you to walk with me and find ways to put these priorities into action! Writing them out is the first step. Stay tuned!
