You can’t stop them from coming! Just as surely as if an expert marksman, with bow in hand, took aim at you and let his arrows fly, they are headed toward you all day, every day. What you do with them is up to you, but be careful, for they will affect every aspect of your life. They will range from unimportant to extremely important to urgent to unchangeable to eternal. And they will lead to decisions that will lead to actions that will lead to consequences—sometimes minute, sometimes life-changing, and sometimes deadly to yourself and others. You and only you can make the final decision on what you will do with each and every one of them. What are they? Choices! Which, of course, includes THE CHOICE of all choices!
