Have you taken the time to work on your priorities and a schedule?
Everything in me wants to encourage the heck out of you to go for it with gusto, but I know that unless you are sold on your priorities and creating a schedule to see that those priorities are met, my words won't do a thing. I am convinced that I need a schedule, that I need to plan my days wisely so that I can reclaim my life. If you're convinced as well, then let's take some time today to really work on a schedule. Talk with your husband about it and get his input. Please don't put this off...and don't put it off just because it can't be perfect. As life changes, so will your schedule.
As you pursue working out your priorities and a schedule, please be encouraged by this wise advice I received in a comment:
"If you follow these precepts all of your life, you will find at the end of it not a perfect trouble free life, but a blessed one. When you fail, get right back up, repent and start all over again with God's grace to do the very things that He wants you to do. You will not ever be sorry." -Anonymous
I am so welled up with passion right now for what God is asking of us that I know it will flow out into words as soon as I have more time. So much more to come...
As a side note, I want you all to know that I am so grateful for your comments and I read every single one. I want to respond to all of them all of the time, but I just can't. Please know that I do not take you for granted.
