It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 6, Page 5, Book 15




It is difficult for some people to accept that love is a choice. This seems to run counter to the generally accepted theory of romantic love which expounds that love is inborn and as such requires no more than to accept it.
 Leo F Buscaglia 


June 5th - Choices

Love is the one option that is always open to you.

Decision making can be especially challenging when several doors are open before us, and many of them seem good. How much easier it would be if God would simply text us a message or send us an email telling us exactly what to do!

Love is a choice, and it represents a commitment. It amazes me that most people spend more time planning next summer's vacation than they do planning the rest of their lives.

 Patricia Fripp

John Wesley simplifies it for us. In regards to what is right and wrong, he says simply this: 

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

I smile at this one. It is so true. We do want to know the best thing to do in our lives, and it seems we seldom have just one choice.
Yes it would be good to get an e-mail or text from the Lord.
YOur minds works lady, that is for sure. (smile)

I like this post too. I found the following thought interesting. "Decision making can be especially challenging when several doors are open before us, and many of them seem good." Asking God to text us with the right choice would make things easier for sure.

I think that would be nice if God would text us with what he has planned for us, but I think by him not doing so, that makes us to have faith in him :)
