Every day we are faced with choices.

What to wear.
What to eat.
Where to go or stay home.
To pay our bills or not to pay.

Some are simple choices
Some are difficult.

Sometimes life brings us sadness and sorrow.
Sometimes we are betrayed by our friends.
Sometimes life brings sickness and pain.
Sometimes we have fear and doubt.

The important thing in life is the choices we
make in response to our life experiences.

When life brings us sadness and sickness,
we can choose to become depressed
and spread our mood to others.

Or we can choose

When a friend betrays us, we can choose to be
angry and respond with bitterness.

Or we can choose to

When we experience sickness and pain,
we can suffer and allow it to weaken us
until we can no longer cope.

Or we can turn to the LORD for strength and help.

When we have fear and doubt,
we can allow it to master us until we are
no longer able to function normally.

Or we can recognize that these are
tools of the devil to destroy us and

These are only a few examples of choices we can make in life.

I am resolved to choose

I hope you remember me.
I am so far behind in my blogging.
So many things have been happening in my life,
but I want to get back on track.

I have finally started making cards again so I will
also be sharing some of them on my blog.

Today I wanted to share a poem that I think
expresses  something that I hope
will be as helpful to you as it is to me.

Speak Out
One never knows how much
A little word may mean.
How it may heal a broken heart
Or still a qualm unseen.

Someone may be discouraged
About to turn aside,
They might be trying to be brave
And all their fears to hide.

They may fear to tell just how
Their weary spirit feels,
But just one kind, little word from you
Could be the one that heals.

Their job they may have tried to do
And yet they feel so wrong
And just a thoughtful word from you
May fill their heart with song.

So friend, speak out!
It won’t cost you a thing,
But to some sorrowing, aching heart
A ray of hope may bring.

We never know what problems 
 those around us are facing ,
 but kindness and love will make a difference.

And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32


Here is the cards I made using Word Art Wednesday's scripture last week.
