Free to Chose

"Because of Calvary, I am free to choose." Max Lucado, Grace for the Moment

Well, Wanda, I had some time to kill before my CoDA meeting tonight, so I stopped in Barnes and Noble to look for a book. I chose the expensive one with a soft leather-like cover, and  "easy-to-read comfort-size print." And when the cashier mentioned something about a free cookie in the cafe, I decided to buy a small coffee and inquire on the offer. ("Buy one get one free," the barista said, and so I chose 2 oatmeal raisin cookies.)

It not so much about getting answers as making choices, and so I will practice choosing. (And quite honestly, I think God really is answering, even if He isn't answering in quite the way I'd expected.)


  1. I think you will love this book. He just has a way of making me see God in new ways ~ ways I never thought of before. I read the first few pages on choosing to live by the fruit of the spirit...and this is my second year to read it. So glad you found it. Mine is the soft leather type cover too.
    Sleep tight tonight and feel my hugs.

  2. Meant to say, I read those first few pages every day...and then the daily devotion for the particular date.

  3. ...interesting take on 'free.'
