walk with me wed...waiting for wisdom

"the hardest thing about the road not taken is that you never know where it might have led.” Lisa Wingate

The December skies have been rather bleak these days. The solstice approaches and I am reminded that the extent of daylight is almost six hours less than it was in June, six months ago.

And these very skies that seem to lack the sun, have been producing parhelia, or sundogs.

We are at the nadir of the year...and I miss the light.

While I'm walking, I have a lot to think about. There are decisions to make.

To decide is to walk facing forward with nary a crick in your neck from looking back at the crossroads. ~Betsy Cañas Garmon

There are things to consider..

Choices are the hinges of destiny. ~Attributed to both Edwin Markham and Pythagoras

and reconsider...

Reconsider, v. To seek a justification for a decision already made. ~Ambrose Bierce

....the decision will not be an easy one. ...there are so many reasons to decide one way...and on the other hand there are the other reasons...

Consider what you think justice requires, and decide accordingly. But never give your reasons; for your judgment will probably be right, but your reasons will certainly be wrong. ~Lord Mansfield

Then again, I've got a quarter in my pocket..heads? or tails....perhaps the choice has already been made for me. One thing for certain..the turning point has almost arrived and soon the sun will shine a little longer. Shine a little light on these dark December days.

The Mansfield quote is interesting. Best wishes for your decisions.

You could have written this post just for me. Life changing decisions paralyze me.

It is that time of year. When darkness overcomes our lives and we search for the light. Best of luck.

Hi Cyndy...hoping that wisdom on the matter at hand has softly settled on you. Decisions and change is hard. And yet, how fortunate we are to have choices.

Wondering what's coming around the bend...and it is good to have choice. I, myself, prefer a clear cut, obvious one. If I get that though, I don't even notice. It doesn't need choosing.

Hope yours falls the way you feel the best.

Has the decision been settled? Sometimes figuring out which fork in the road is so agonizingly hard.
Praying you'll feel that gentle nudge on your shoulder letting you know the way to go, and peace within your soul.
