I CHOOSE LOVE…
No occasion justifies hatred;
No injustice warrants bitterness. I choose love.
Today I will love God and what God loves.
I CHOOSE JOY….
I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance.
I will refuse the temptation to be cynical….
The tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see
people as anything less than human beings,
created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as
anything less than an opportunity to see God.
I CHOOSE PEACE….
I will live forgiven. I will forgive so that I may live.
I CHOOSE PATIENCE….
I will overlook the inconveniences of the world
instead of cursing the one who takes my place.
I’ll invite him to do so. Rather than complain that
the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment
to pray, instead of clenching my fist at new assignments.
I will face them with joy and courage.

Today the choice is YOURS…..
