Choice. Everybody has one. Free will.
Right now…. at this moment… you have choices. We all do. Possibilities. Then there are probabilities, and finally, outcomes. But first there are choices. And many multiple possibilities.
So…. If you choose to… choose the one which is TRUE.
You guessed it. There are multiple choices.
A. When I was 12 years old, I was playing in the Little League Regional Finals in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We were playing Bowling Green, Kentucky, and we were down 2 runs in the bottom of the seventh. I was up to bat with two outs and bases loaded. I hit a triple into left field and we won the game. I cried.
B. When I was 8 years old, we visited my Mom’s relatives up in Mercer County, Ohio. The town was named Egypt. I thought that was funny, and asked my Mom about the pyramids. I met my Great Aunts Bertha and Christine. Neither one ever married. They were chicken farmers, and had close to 40 birds. But neither one of them would eat chicken or eggs. For lunch that day, we ate bologna sandwiches with Hellman’s Mayonnaise and stale potato chips.
C. When I lived on Emerson Avenue, in Dayton, Ohio, I had a cat named Hamilton. He was tailless. One night, while I was on the phone, Hamilton walked across the dining room table where I was sitting. There was a candle lit on the table, and he rubbed right up against it. His butt caught on fire, and I had to stop, drop, and roll him.
D. When I was a Senior in High School, I was in the Honor Society, President of my Senior Class, in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), on the debate team, and lettered in 4 Varsity Sports.
Which one is TRUE? Good luck. The stakes are high.
Prize winners will be announced tomorrow.
Remember…. You can’t win if you don’t play.
One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes… and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.
Every day brings new choices.
