A new year. A new beginning. Most of us probably made a few resolutions during this time of renewal. After all the indulgences of the Christmas season, it is an appropriate time to set some goals toward changing our lives for the better. My resolution list this year contained a few "left-overs" from last year: diet more, exercise more, save more, call my family more, more time with Jim, and more time for devotions. Suddenly I realized that each of these items on my list had that "four letter" word in it MORE. Perhaps the reason I hadn't accomplished everything I wanted was because I hadn't done something LESS.
In this stressful world, pastoral wives especially need to make sure we keep our lives balanced. Check your list. Check your priorities. And check your balances. Most importantly, check with Jesus for wisdom. He'll let you know what's really priority! Happy New Year!
