Today I am going to challenge you to reset your priorities. For each of you that will mean something different. None of our priorities are ever the same...but sometimes someone needs to get your attention and say RETHINK THIS.

WHAT is most important right now and WHO is most important right now?

I can only answer for me right now, not for you. God is first as always. Next I have to shuffle. I have again put myself on a back burner, fell off the wagon for loosing my summer weight gain, haven't done my exercise tape in four days, ate a brownie last night, and went to bed miserable. You know who can fix this??? Me. Maybe you all need to help me be accountable....egads, that is scary. How many times have I groaned climbing in bed realizing I did not do the things I needed to do for me that day... I have worked, painted, cleaned house, washed clothes, folded clothes, played with the dogs, cooked and cleaned up...etc but nothing for my health and well being.

My other priorities are my husband, then adult children and my parents and siblings. I can't do anything for them if I do not take care of me.

Next on my list is maintaining a healthy positive outlook during this terribly frightening economic time. Remember what your grandmother told you and be thrifty right now. Go back to examining needs and wants to identify what you should or should not do.

Find your big things to work on today and know you can do it!


“Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
