We choose how we shall live;
courageously or in cowardice,
honorably or dishonorably,
with purpose or in drift.
We decide what is important
and what is trivial in life.
We decide that what makes us significant
is either what we do or refuse to do . . .
And as we decide and as we choose,
. . . so our lives are formed . . .
I'm not sure who wrote this but it tells it so well - WE CHOOSE / WE DECIDE!
"And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are exellent and worthy of praise, Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and heard from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you."
