THOUGHTS TO GUIDE US BY 

(FOR AUGUST, 2011)

            God, In His infinite kindness bestowed upon us our greatest ability – the power to choose.  He provided us with us the cards of life!  How we deal with these life cards is solely our choice, our own doing.  Depending, therefore, on the choices we make, on the acts we do, our lives can either be creative or destructive, successful or failure, happy or sad, truthful or dishonest.  Whether to tread the “tuwid na daan” or the crooked path really depends on us…as we are responsible for our lives!

            This God-given power to choose is exercised by all of us as we go through the daily grind of life.  There are choices we may consider major, some we may presume to be minor.  No choice however seemingly small can be considered insignificant … for upon the most seemingly unimportant choices we make – will define the quality of life we will have.

            In the final analysis, the choices we make will profoundly influence and determine not just our future, but that of our beloved land.  As the old adage goes, history often turns on small hinges.  And so are our lives!!!

 Our lives are interconnected, intertwined with others as we have responsibility to each other.  The strongest principle of general growth – economical, political and moral -- lies in the human choice.

            Peace and abundance to us all!
