Today’s Choices

Pre-Dawn; Time for Choices

Today was definitely a choice.

A choice to get up.

A choice to do what needed to be done.

A choice to walk the dog.

A choice to put up the Christmas tree.

A choice to sing.

A choice to dance.

A choice to interact; not only with humans, but with God my Father = A choice to worship.

Choices.

We are faced with them every day.

We make more choices by noon than we are even aware of.

The differences between success and failure, I believe, are these;

The people we hang around, with and the books we read.

These days we can add one more; the media we absorb.

All choices; To do or to don’t do what we should.

Today as I said, was definitely a choice.

My choice was to actually do each of the things I listed.

Truthfully, I’m still feeling a little malaise.

Maybe from allergies, maybe from something else.

My Bible tells me that it didn’t come to stay, “It came to pass.”

My choices made me feel better while I was doing them, and today’s malaise will give way to a better day tomorrow.

One thing I know for sure, is that when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll have no regret for not doing anything today.

So friends, let me encourage you , make choices today that will not be regretted tomorrow.

Then do it again.

And again.

Someone told me once that “It’s not what you do sometimes, it’s what you do every day.”

No matter how you might feel, make the choices that you can, and make tomorrow a better day.

I’ll “see” you soon, until then;

Be well.

I’ll just leave these here.

Because I like them.

I am currently off learning a new skill set.

I would much prefer to just wake up and know how to do it.

But alas, beginning new things can be a frustration.

But along with that frustration, if “We are weary but faint not”, we are rewarded with treasures we cannot imagine.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Until next time …

Oh, Pioneer!

The “road” I take every day for my walk is a gently used farm path.

It is peaceful, and quiet, and I know what to expect.

Today I saw this.

It made me think of the trailblazers of old.

The pioneers who cleared the path for those who would come along behind.

Pioneers never knew what was awaiting them along the way, but went forward anyway.

The excitement of new horizons guiding them.

Pioneers always in the lead, and basically, taking the hits, so that the settlers following could have a safer place to dwell.

We need pioneers.

We need settlers.

It is OK to be either.

I think my physical self, is more like a settler.

Contrast that to my spiritual self, who is always looking forward to the next big learning opportunity.

Do you know which one you are?

Pioneer; noun a person who is among those who first enter or settle a region, thus opening it for occupation and development by others.

Settler; noun a person who settlesĀ in a new country or area.

Pioneer

The Band Perry

Oh Pioneer, I sing your song
Well it’s the hymn of those who’ve gone before and those who carry on
Pioneer, your work is hard
But the future of us all rests on the shoulders of your heart

Where are we going
Oh I don’t know
But still I’ve got to go
What will become of us
Oh I don’t care
All I know is I’ll go anywhere
Pioneer

Oh Pioneer
So young and brave
Be careful of the careful souls who doubt you along the way
Pioneer, you orphaned child
Your mother is adventure and your father is the wild

Where are we going, oh I don’t know
But still I’ve got to go
What will become of us
Oh I don’t care
All I know is I’ll go anywhere
Pioneer

Let your heart not be troubled

I won’t run when bullets chase me
I won’t rest where arms embrace me
I will love when people hate me
I won’t hush, no you can’t make me
Send the dark but it won’t break me
You can try but you can’t change me
Take my life, they will replace me
I won’t hush, no you can’t make me
I won’t hush, no we will sing

Where are we going
Oh I don’t know
But still I’ve got to go
What will become of us
Oh I don’t care
All I know is I’ll go anywhere
Pioneer

Let your heart not be troubled
