The One Thing

A sweet reader sent me an email asking what the One Thing in my "about me" is. My reply follows:

The One Thing is Jesus. Everything else pales in comparison to the importance of knowing Him, serving Him, following Him... being His. My responsibilities as wife, mother, friend, sister, employee, all need to be secondary to my love for Him. I have an older friend who says, "Don't sweat the small stuff... and it's ALL small stuff!" Everything but Jesus is temporary. Who I become in Him is eternal.

Such a good reminder for ME!!
Thank you for asking.


I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His suffering, becoming like Him in His death...
~Philippians 4:10

For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
~I Corinthians 2:2
