The Power of CHOICE

19-20 I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him. Oh yes, he is life itself, a long life settled on the soil that God, your God, promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

A great reminder that life is a choice Patchouli.. especially in those small and insignificant choices that bring life to our heart.

Blessings, Bob

and conversely, that those small, insignificant everyday choices can be matters of life and death for our own hearts and those whom we impact.
may all our words, of whatever colour or shape, be words of life and not words of death

there's a song, "choose life" by Big Tent Revival

"Choose life, that you might live
The life that He gives
He gives you forever
Choose life, the way that it's true
From the one who chose you
Your father in Heaven
Choose life . . .
And the weight you're under
Will be lifted away
And the world will wonder
What happened here today"

great song, great reminder
