CHOICES 

  • You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice.
  • The 3 C’s of life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.
  • Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you made, if you want different results start making different choices.

Riddle Me This

  1. Railroad crossing without any cars. Can you spell that without any R’s?
  2. How many apples grow on a tree?
  3. A man was sitting on his couch and searching for the English Channel. How did he find it?

Last week’s answers

  1. You fill the five gallon up and pour it into the 3 gallon. Then dump the 3 gallon out and pour what was left in the 5 gallon into the 3 gallon so that you have 2 gallons in the 3 gallon. Then fill the 5 gallon up and pour it into the 3 gallon to fill it up. Now you have 4 gallons in the 5 gallons.
  2. A tongue
  3. Lunch and dinner
