Daughter of dear friends John & Jane B, Christi Bolanos Rooke posted an inspiring note on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday. Along with the MLK Jr. quote that I was familiar with was this sentence at the end of Christi’s comments:
May we choose people over possession, justice over power, and love over fear!
I am praying that sentence each day, replacing the “we” with “I”. I want to be a person who chooses well, who is a Jesus follower in big and small ways. I want to choose beauty and love and have a heart full of thankfulness at the end of the day.
