  1. What were the "seeds" that started to erode your ability to maintain a heathy separation from those things that you should have distance from today?
  2. What was your reaction in your moments of challenge?
  3. If you were unable to maintain a separation from the things or people that cause you to stumble, is this a recurring struggle?  What will you do differently tomorrow to prevent it?  What fence will you erect to help you?

  5. Were you able to use prayer or meditation to help you through the circumstances?
