Every day offers a choice: what sort of reading, what sort of TV, what sort of conversation, what sort of friends will we choose to welcome into our home. - From today's Magnificat.

Whether we know it or not, like it or not, whenever we make a choice to read something, watch something or spend time with someone, we are feeding our souls.

In today's Gospel, Jesus beckons us to come to Him and promises us rest if we do. It's a choice. You don't have to do it if you don't want to.

As children, teens and young adults, we experience peer pressure to do things that perhaps we have no interest in doing. I've even experienced it as an adult, much to my surprise AND chagrin.

Every day, I choose not to watch a certain program or read certain books and I might even avoid certain people.  But today I'm going to try and let go of one burden and let Him carry it.  I sure could use the rest.
