March Madness - Day 16

You have the freedom to choose!

Short dress. Long dress. Frilly dress. Straight dress.

Yellow. Black. Navy. Pink. Purple.

"What kind of shoes would I wear?"

SOOO many options.

Choices galore.

We went from store to store. We looked on-line. No luck yet.

"This is harder than I thought!"

My response, "That's because you're so picky."

No matter what, Job 34:4 reminds to "Let us choose for ourselves what is right; Let us know among ourselves what is good."

There is no cookie cutter response we can give for the things that are right for ourselves. 

There was no need for me to get quiet in the car. 

Yes, I am picky. I am picky because I can be. After all, I have the freedom to choose.

What freedom of choice will you make for yourself today?

They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
