My word is "service"

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

My word for 2014 is "service," service to my husband, service to my children, service to my community, and service to myself. What do I mean by "service to myself?" I mean to take care of my health and well-being, acting out of love for myself, just as I plan to serve my family and community out of love.

Jesus first
Others second
Yourself last...

...but you have to "put on your oxygen mask" first before you can help your loved ones, so I will be taking care of myself as an act of taking care of them because it will make me better able to serve them as I am called and driven to do.

    Great choice! A word to inform us for the year is such a valuable strategy.
    Each year each person in our family selects a word too. Mine is determination this year.
