ĎPriorities are not written in granite. They need to be flexible and change as we do. I find it helpful to think of priorities as the wooden frame upon which we stretch the canvas of our days.í ~Sarah Breathnach
A priority is something that is important to each of us. Our health is an important priority as is the welfare of our family, financial security, employment and so on. There are many other priorities that are unique to each of us. For some the main priority is simply to get through this day. We are indeed pulled in all directions and itís sometimes hard to know whatís important and what takes priority. The image of the wooden frame is helpful and particularly when we apply it to God. Each day is Godís precious gift to us and like a canvas it is blank waiting for us to add our colour. If we donít prioritise certain things we end up trying to do everything and in the end have little to show for it. What one thing is important to me today? Can I do something to make it happen?
