Litany of choosing


Get up now or snuggle in?
Toast, cereal, tea or coffee?
Zesty lemon shower gel or honey and almond?
Blue socks or green?
Shoes or boots?
Walk or drive?
From the minute we open our eyes
or not
our day is full of choices.
Some huge, some little
but all with consequences.
Impacting us and our neighbour,
folk like us with choices
and folk for whom there are no options
only unremitting sameness
and resignation.
So whether the deal
seems big or small
whatever the ease or difficulty of decision
May we always value the luxury of choice
And may our choices be life enhancing.


See I have set before you today life and prosperity, death and adversity.
Deuteronomy 30 v 15
