Choices

Saturday, February 25, 2012

You never know when "it" is going to happen. Your eyes are wide open, every sense keenly aware...your brain making a choice, setting in motion a response that your heart was not invested in. You are present, in every facet of the word...as hand goes to mouth, repeatedly...excessively...def
eatingly. I devoured every morsel of illegal contraband that I chose to allow across the border of my resolve last night. I chose.

I let an emotionally tumultuous week goad me into weakness. But defeat in the moment is something I am simply no longer willing to surrender to. It is not God's best for me.

You never know when "it" is going to happen. Your eyes are wide open, every sense keenly aware...your brain making a choice, setting in motion a response that your heart was not invested in. You are present, in every facet of the word...as the heart dictates a tempo...and the lungs fill in compliance to the call...the legs and feet moving in fluid accord...willingly...resplende
ntly...victoriously. Today I devoured every moment of one of "those" runs, the kind where I can literally feel an athlete emerge...breaking free in emancipation from a body that no longer "can't" or just "won't". I chose.

Some choices...we could stand to miss out on for having made them. Some choices...WE would miss out for NOT having made them.

"We are only one good choice away from being back on the path of perseverance." ~Lysa TerKeurst, Made to Crave

    You amaze me, sister!
    I have to say that I, myself, was tempted by those pictures you posted...they were some yummy looking goodies!
    What I like to do when i get into a baking mood is take most of what I've made and "box" them up. I take them into work and leave them on the table saying, "These are NOT going home with me." Did it with cookies a few weeks back. I think out of the whole batch, I ate 2 cookies, the kids had 2-3 over the course of a few days, and the rest were eaten by my co-workers or their children.
    Do you have someone you can share with? A friend, neighbor, hubby's co-workers....whoever you see on the street who needs a cookie? emoticon

    Proud of the run you did, too!
    emoticon sauce right there!! (yes, awesome sauce is my new word with Tyler...he thinks it's funny)
    You amaze me all the time and I'm so thankful to have you in my life. I look up to you, I look to you...and I'm just so grateful! Keep on shining, my friend!!

    This is a great blog! You are SO right. "It" can strike at any moment, we just need to seize the opportunity or ward off the demon.
