At this time of year, we often take stock, reflecting on what is ... and what isn't ... important in our lives.
Here is a partial look at my list:
Handwritten Christmas cards with a personal message.
A beautifully decorated house.
Being able to help our grandchildren wtih braces, special classes, etc.
A new car. (Mine is circa 2000.)
Paying tithing to the Lord.
Expensive clothes. (I am queen of garage sales.)
Loyalty to my friends.
Doubtless you have other things on your list. Take a moment or two and decide what belongs on your important list and what you can let go. It may surprise you.
Joy for today: evaluating my priorities.
