Choices at Sunrise
Every sunrise brings new choices.
Will I greet the sun with a smile?
Or, will I begin with a frown?
Each “small” decision sets the course for the rest of the day.
Do I choose love or indifference?
Do I choose joy or mourning?
Do I choose peace or strife?
Do I choose patience or agitation?
Do I choose kindness or animosity?
Do I choose goodness or corruption?
Do I choose faithfulness or treachery?
Do I choose gentleness or imperviousness?
Do I choose self-control or agitation?
Each choice yields blessing or discipline from the Lord.
Dear One, take heart.
Tomorrow brings a new sunrise with the opportunity to choose all over again.
On New Years Day I wrote A Year of Gratitude. I am pleased to report that at least one slip of paper goes into the jar daily. I can say without a shadow of doubt that each note is the direct result of someone making the right choice at sunrise.
