Now there’s a thought that could be either a plea or a challenge. If tomorrow is my birthday and I know that wrapped gift sitting there is for me – it could be a challenge. With the right hint, I could choose from a group of possibilities – all good possibilities.
If you watch a local TV morning news report while you begin your day, you will hear a weather forecast. It is nearly certain the forecaster will refer to chance or probability in some fashion or another. “The rain will hold off this morning, but most of the area has a chance for scattered showers – maybe even a thunderstorm – sometime in the late afternoon.”
Life can follow challenging paths. It can lead to frustration and anger. It can bring sadness; even grief and loss may be included. All of this can generate fear. The path can unfold even more: exhaustion, drained feelings, and the experience of all energy – emotional and physical – having been spent.
