Reminders

Image may contain: text

Things have been a little crazy lately. Although it’s been seven months since our big move, it still doesn’t quite feel like we’ve settled just yet.

I was reminded today that God has a purpose for each of us, and sometimes in the middle of the chaos we forget that.

We forget because we’re too caught up in the here and now – the “busy”-ness of life. You know, the gettin’ up everyday-go-to-work-come-home-work-some-more-what-are-we-having-for-dinner-tonight kind of busy. The monotonous daily activities that, while necessary, also distract us from the more important things in life.

Coffee with a friend.

Intimate conversations with a spouse.

That book you’ve read to your child at least 564 times and he wants it one..more…time.

Sound familiar?

It’s all to familiar to me, and usually it’s because I’m focused on the immediate and not the important. When I don’t begin my day focused on what matters, I neglect what matters. 

Anyone else have that challenge? I’d love to hear how you prioritize and how you manage to keep that which is most important first in your life.

I’m still learning…
