A Season of Choice – Happy Thanksgiving (Re-posted)
Posted on November 21, 2014
With this being the season of Thanksgiving, I found it most fitting to share just one thing that I am thankful for.
Although a bit non- traditional, I find myself most thankful for the freedom of choice. Having the freedom to choose has led me on paths far and wide. As the years have gone by, I’ve tried many things in the way of relationships, ministry, business, jobs, education, etc. All of which led me to this moment and the following thought in which I will share with you today.
“In Life Realize” by Janie Williams Brown
By realizing the things In Life that I do not like…..
I have come to realize the things In Life that I do love……..
By realizing the things In Life that only fools try…..
I have come to realize the things In Life that’ll make one cry…..
By realizing the things In Life that I do not want….
I have come to realize that the good things In Life are worth the hunt….
By realizing the things In Life that God foreknew….
I have come to realize the things In Life that I am destined to do…..
This one thing I know to be true and that is that no one is to blame for the mistakes I’ve made along the way. Whether battles won or wars lost, I am the captain of my own choices.
In fact, I used my TaMiM to arrive at my current destination. What is a TaMiM you ask? According to ancient Jewish wisdom it is an affirmation of life which requires use of our God-given capabilities to make choices. Through life’s earnest experiences and the choices made I’ve come to a place of knowing who I am; who’s I am and most importantly appreciating who I have come to be.
Most graciously, I am thankful for this current cycle of choice; my choice to share this post, your choice to read it and the choices that will bring about positive thought and in-turn positive change this Thanksgiving Season.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours…..
This is absolutely awesome Janie!!! Thanks for choosing to share it, I’m so glad I chose to read it…and of course I am gonna make the choice to pass it along!!! Good stuff!!!!
