choice by choice….

These aren’t second-hand lives we’re living.
They’re our very own to claim
choice by choice
by choice
by choice
by choice.

“You are surrounded by beauty,  the wonder of creation,  art,  your music and culture,
the sounds of laughter and love,  of whispered hopes and celebrations,
of new life and transformation,  of reconciliation and forgiveness.
These are also the results of your choices
and every choice matters,
even the hidden ones.”
-Paul Young

“In the long run,  we shape our lives
and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately
our own responsibility.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt
