Keeping the first things first...

Sometimes in the mess of life it becomes scrambled and first things end up being put off as last things and the middle things push their way to first.

No idea what I'm talking about?? :)

#1 GOD
#2 Spouse
#3 Children
#4 Job/Church/ Extended family
#5 Everything else

Yes, #4 is 3 things, but those three often need to be mixed and matched, all given the appropriate amount of time, respect, and availability... but there's no way to say that one should come ahead of the others every time. Job generally comes first, but not at the expense of the others, and vise-versa.

Just a reminder, in case you need it as much as I often do!


  1. I full agree! This is how I prioritize, too. :o)

  2. You're leaving something out of your list -- yourself! Where would you put yourself?
