first things first.

When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest,
I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased.
-C.S. lewis

when God is in first place in my life & luke's life just works better. i think this quote says it best. it's hung up on my vanity to make sure i don't forget that first things belong first.
love God then luke,
