Thought for the Week: Priorities Are What You Do

I have been having computer issues--and now my computer will not open my WORD doc at all. I am scheduled to get a new computer as soon as I can part with this one for a couple of days, and it looks like now is that time!

While I can't get to my blog posts in WORD, I do have a thought for the week that is burning within me as I prepare to graduate our fifth child in the next two weeks (party in a week; graduation in another week following): priorities are what we do.

Ray and I shared this in all three of our sessions this weekend--because it is incredibly true and incredibly life-affecting.

We can say that something is a priority to us (teaching our kids about the Lord, exercising, playing as a family, discussions, date nights, consistent chore times, etc.), but unless we are doing those things on a regular basis, there are not priorities but are simply wishes. Dreams and wishes that we fantasize about but do not do. Because priorities are what we do.

With that in mind, this week, let's all examine what we are truly doing. (If your week is unusual, like mine with graduation party then graduation and grown kids in and out, you might wait a week or two to do this--but not everything is "unusual"---if something is the way it is, it is not unusual, but is our new normal.)

Anyway, let's examine our lives this week--and see if what we dream of as our priorities--or even what we tell others are our priorities--truly are. After all, priorities are what we do. So whatever we do this week will likely be our true priorities in life.
