Love is not a feeling, It is a choice.

As Promised, here is the second Microburst I am posting in honor of my anniversary... 14 years.

I Choose…
It’s all a choice; life is simply a choice. We choose to love someone or we choose to hate someone by the choice thoughts we choose to think about them. Think about it.
This year my darling husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. In this day of micro marriages, that is a rare occurrence.
For that reason, it was a very special day, right? So, you might wonder how we celebrated such a special event. Well, on the very day, probably even at the very moment that we said, “I do,” he was yelling, “Fore!” (For those of you who are golfly challenged, he was playing golf.) Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I was surrounded by screaming children.
I did a good job of making that sound pretty bad, didn’t I? The truth of the matter is I chose to let him go. I had to work at the daycare. Yes, he was playing golf probably at the same time we said our I do’s, but we didn’t have a nighttime ceremony. We eloped, and were at the courthouse one morning before noon (that same date 10 years ago to be vaguely exact).
I chose not to be upset that the most memorable moment of my tenth wedding anniversary is him golfing without me. The Bible says we need to let our yes be yes and our no be no. I told him he could go.

Simply say yes or no. Anything more than that comes from the evil one.
Matthew 5:37

Proverbs 3:5-6
