Today I met one of my classmates from childhood that I hadn’t seen in years.  Barely recognized her.  She has more diseases in her body, is on 19 medications and is significantly overweight and a smoker. She also told me about someone we know who had killed himself (or so it was thought). 

When I looked at her I realize so much of where she is at is because of life choices.  Some were hereditary.  And then I thought to myself, prolonged sinfulness does not lead people to joy-filled lives.  It just doesn’t.

Thanking God tonight that he has kept me on the path of righteousness (probably at the expense of more than a few angelic, glorious interventions).
