On A Scale Of 1-10

How do you measure success?

How often do you measure it?

Do you have a consistent method?

Does it even matter?

What do you do if you are doing poorly, or, really well?

How do you avoid giving up, or, getting complacent?

These are things we all need to figure out.

So last night I asked our son, On a scale of one to ten, how much do you think I love you?

His answer really surprised me.

Do You Mind?

Busy-ness Is Distracting
Busy-ness Is Distracting

Being on the road for five days this week was rewarding and taxing. Unless you do this frequently, it may be challenging to understand, but I hope you do, because it’s the challenging part I want to relate to you.

We are all faced with daily challenges. One person’s small challenge is another’s big challenge.

This will seem small in comparison to life-threatening issues, but herein lies a secret.

Being crazy-busy does not give us an excuse to be unfaithful.

So in picking up our son, late yesterday, as we got in the car, it hit me. I had not been on my knees in prayer yet. Each morning, it’s the same:

  • Wake up
  • Bathroom
  • Kiss Cheryl and Chapin as they sleep
  • Kneel at the foot of the bed
  • Say the three most important prayers

“Do you mind if I do it now”, I asked him. “No, I don’t mind”, he said.
