A little bit o truth

Many are the strange chances in the world, and help oft shall come from the weak when the Wise falter..

JRR Tolkien, the Silmarillion

I re-read the quote above about a week ago... In our moment by moment lives it is easy to lose sight of the simplest of truth. When presented with the choice of water or a frappacino, let me tell you, the frappacino wins more than it should. 
We are often presented with choices and chances that are far more important than a beverage, and yet, our wisdom falters and the voices of wisdom fade away from our mind at the smallest opportunity.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
Life is lived daily, to be met new every morning, for a very important reason. I believe that God himself, who created us and knows our weakness and passion and desire, provided us with the help we need if we seek.
