When we read of the great Biblical leaders, we see that it was not uncommon for God to ask them to wait, not just a day or two, but for years, until God was ready for them to act.
With each new experience of letting God be in control, we gain courage and reinforcement for daring to do it again and again.
Choices can change our lives profoundly. The choice to mend a broken relationship, to say "yes" to a difficult assignment, to lay aside some important work to play with a child, to visit some forgotten person - these small choices may affect many lives eternally.
Tradition gives us a sense of solidarity and roots, a knowing there are some things one can count on.
Memories are perhaps the best gifts of all.
The things that matter the most in this world, they can never be held in our hand.
Even in the winter, in the midst of the storm, the sun is still there. Somewhere above the clouds, it still shines and warms and pulls at the life buried deep inside the brown branches and frozen earth.
What will your children remember? We can change the world inside our own houses. Take the gift of this moment and make something beautiful of it. Few worthwhile experiences just happen; memories are made on purpose.
There may be no trumpet sound or loud applause when we make a right decision, just a calm sense of resolution and peace.
We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly, but let us never lose sight of the reason for the journey or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way.
