"Choices make the difference. Two people are in the same accident and severely wounded. They did not choose to be in the accident. It happened to them. But one of them chose to live the experience in bitterness, the other in gratitude. These choices radically influenced their lives and the lives of their families and friends. We have very little control over what happens in our lives, but we have a lot of control over how we integrate and remember what happens. It is precisely these spiritual choices that determine whether we live our lives with dignity." Henri Nouwin  How have past choices impacted our lives for the good or for the bad? How do we want our choices from this point on to influence our journey? What choices have I made today and what choices will I be making? The difference between choices that bless us and those that do not is the reality of God in our lives.  We can choose to do what pleases God or we can choose to be self-focused. The choice is ours and so are the ramifications.
