We have moments in our lives when we have an opportunity to make a choice, should I go this way, or that way. I might be just going along, minding our own business, and then, suddenly, a decision is require. Perhaps someone falls, and needs a helping hand up, or perhaps we see a stranded motorist beside the road, and we decide whether to stop or to continue on. This series of choices we make, happen more or less constantly throughout our day. Will I eat lunch at McDonalds or Taco Bell. You could say, at the end of the day, we are the result of all of the choices we made today.

One choice I observed recently was at the Apache Pass Rally, and it struck me as particularly significant. Many of us were out by the river watching pastor Rick and Rhino baptize people. When Rick had finished baptizing all those that planned to participate, he decided to ask if anyone else wanted to be baptized. It was probably a spur of the moment decision, but that decision prompted a man in the crowd, to consider that he needed to be baptized, and so he raised his hand and walked out to Rick and got baptized on the spot. It was just a decision, but it is probably one he will remember for the rest of his life. Our moments are full of choices, how are your moments going?
