Over the years I’ve made lists in case I forget to do something and let others – or myself – down. On particularly busy times there may be a list for that month, that week, sometimes even for that “tomorrow.” And there was that long, long list I had to make for us to make sure everything was organised for our trip overseas last year to the ACFW conference.
I always try to put the most urgent things on the top. For example:-
Electricty bill (that should be paid before tomorrow)Prepare for the prayer meeting in the evening. (The house is a real mess!)
Email (Try to do the most urgent: editor, agent, speaking engagement requests, friends’ visit.)
Write new blog post due tomorrow.
Yes, “Life” did happen in the Hawkins family these last few weeks and many lists had to be scrapped. On my own blog this last week I shared the major one. When your son’s beautiful mother-in-law suddenly becomes ill and goes to be with the Lord very quickly, the lists simply get tossed out and precious grandchildren who have lost their precious “Nan” need top priority while their Mum and Dad have to be away.
