From time to time, I post something straight out of my journal. I call them my SOOJ posts. Today's is from the pages I wrote first thing this morning.

A month gone by. One out of twelve already past. How did I spend it? Did I spend it well? Did I pursue my passions and my interests? Did I serve God by serving others? Did I have self-control and offer proofs of love? Did I spend time with Sloane and make her feel special, adorable, wonderful? Did I parent well? Did I make each day, each moment count? Did I serve Jeffrey or only allow myself to be served? Did I perform well at work and give my boss more than I was paid for? Did I truly live the values that I hold? Did I spend time each day in the Word? Did I spend time each day in prayer? Did I spend time each day in worship? Did I call my mother every day? Did I focus on paying more attention to friends and what is going on with them? Did I remember that my priority is people over productivity? Did I cherish the people with whom I share my life? Did I really do my best with the tasks before me? How well did I live in January? How did I live?
