2/14/06 Our Father, we pray again for your blessing on our meeting here this hour – we thank you for prayers answered – for family and friends and for the opportunities that are ours this day. Help us to use them wisely and with discretion. Amen
Discretion, not a very hip word, but I like it. It is related to the word discernment.
The New World Dictionary gives it’s first definition as: “the freedom or authority to make decisions and choices.”
Not only do we have the Opportunity to make choices each day, we are to use the freedom and authority to make Wise choices.
A Wise choice made with Discretion benefits more than just myself. I am put here for a reason and there was a plan in this person’s exact timeline in proximity to others.
Our timelines are interwoven, like the fine handwork on this beautiful scarf my son bought while serving in the Navy. The end result more beautiful and useful than single threads.
