What Do You Choose Today?

Love travels 10,000 miles to share Jesus.

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.” 
― Mother Teresa

Life brings us lots of choices.  Whether we want to make them or not.  You choose to love, to give, to laugh, to live, to die, to sing, to dance, to try, to give up, to believe, to trust...yes, you make all the choices.  

Love says we are family...
Filipino, American, African...
It doesn't matter.

Monday Morning

What do you choose today?  You can have a positive life, full of goodness and grace...It's up to you.  I believe it all starts with LOVE.  If you love God, Others and of course Yourself, you will live a life fulfilled.  It's not about things and social status.  It's about relationships, cultivated and nurtured to grow and flourish.  When we sow love, we reap love.  Even in the times of sorrow and tragedy, it's the ones who know how to love and be loved, that you see come out on the other side, still able to love.  

You can't talk about love and life without God.  He is love and He created life.  

God Is Love ] My beloved friends, 
let us continue to love each other 
since love comes from God
Everyone who loveis born of God 
and experiences a relationship with God
The person who refuses to love
doesn’t know the first thing about God
because God is love
—so you can’t know him if you don’t love
This is how God showed his love for us: 
God sent his only Son into the world 
so we might live through him. 
This is the kind of love we are talking about
—not that we once upon a time loveGod
but that he loved us 
and sent his Son 
as a sacrifice 
to clear away our sins 
and the damage they’ve done 
to our relationship with God
-1 John 4:8 MSG

So I ask you again, what do you choose today?  I hope you choose to love and be loved.  It's simple and we hear about it everywhere we go.  But it is truth and truth is truth no matter how simple or complicated.  

Love, Grandmother and Granddaughter  
Love, Step Father and Son

You want to be like Jesus...LOVE.
