P.S. Most of you said your eye was drawn to the water/rocks/spash in yesterday’s picture. Thanks for commenting!

All these choices I’ve posed this week has gotten me thinking about all sorts of things. More serious choices where I don’t always get to pick the outcome, things that happen that affect the rest of what happens. When I was a kid, I had a fairly serious operation on my ankle that left me laid up for a few months and kept me out of exercise for a year or so. It caused me to have a lot of time on my hands to read and to play the piano, which I think caused me to have a deep deep love for each and affected who I became. So, in a way, I’m thankful for that injury/surgery, because the pain resulted in a great thing in my life. (although I wouldn’t have said that at the time)
Would you rather….a)live in an exotic locale with no close ties to family or friends or b)live in a normal (?) environment close to family and friends?
Would you rather….a) have responsibilities or b) have no responsibilities, ever?
Would you rather….a) have a pain-free, trouble-free life or b) go through some trials along the way?
Hard choices…praise God, we don’t usually have to pick these outcomes, because I would probably pick all the easy ones and stay immature all my life. 🙂 God in his mercy knows what we need and don’t need in our lives so that we can become more like Him. We just need to trust, childlike, and try to enjoy the ups and downs. (easier said than done, for sure)
May your trials and challenges all give you a beautiful ending. Hang in there. Blessings, Lisa
….fly in an open cockpit airplane?And you have to pick one! This is a short teaser of tomorrow’s post. It was going to be today’s, but another early spring snowstorm wrecked the internet until now. So get psyched, get ready, get your brain in gear…it’s coming, tomorrow morning. 9AM EST. May your grass be green and your sky be sunny. (please, for me, as it is not here. 🙂 ) Slainte, Lisa
