Completing Him - Priorities

I am so behind in the challenge! I have been searching through old photo boxes to find just the right pictures of us to tell the story of how we met and about our wedding. Then the fourth of July came and went.

Well now here we are in week #5!! The challenge this week is to make a list of 5 things you currently do or need to do and ask your husband to prioritize them for you of what is important to him. For example - a clean home, home cooked dinner, coupon clipping, service at church, having friends over for dinner, watching/doing sports with him, etc.

So off to write my list I did...
Well I came up with way more than 5 possible things for him to prioritize for me! 13 Actually!!! Boy what a hard job I have created for him! I think I know what will be the top five - but I don't want to assume anything - I want to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Even if it is a little hard to hear sometimes! The truth will set me free...

So here they are -

1.  Clean home
2.  Organize/De-clutter
3.  Intimacy ♥
4.  Dinner ready when he gets home
5.  Pay bills

It was a little different than the list I had picked for him - Imagine that!

So tell me - was your list different too?

How we treat our Bibles

Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?

What if we flipped through it several times a day?

What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?

What if we used it to receive messages from the text?

What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?

What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible?

Oh, and one more thing.

Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.

Makes you stop and think "where are my priorities?" And no dropped calls!

When Jesus died on the cross, he was thinking of you!
