Friday Five: Decisions, Decisions

Ducks in the Mail: At the Post Office

The RevGalBlogPal "Friday Five" topic du jour is "DISCERNMENT" and the assignment blessedly avoids angst or deep digging.  "Tell us which word in the pair appeals to you most, and after you've done all five, give us the reason why for one of them."

1) Cake or Pie:  CAKE
2) Train or Airplane:  TRAIN
3) Mac or PC:  MAC
4) Univocal or Equivocal:  UNIVOCAL
5) Peter or Paul:  PAUL

Reason for Mac over PC:  I don't like to struggle.  My MacBook doesn't freeze up. It's easy to figure out.  It does what I want to do instead of the other way around.  And -- with a really cute hot pink skin -- goes everywhere stylin'!

Most difficult choice:  Peter or Paul, and it was the most fun to think about!

Catch 22 choice:  Cake or Pie, because I'm gluten free.  However, either can be made GF, and I've always liked cake the best, and not just for the icing, either.

My go-to discernment method:  For the big decisions, I don't always know what saying "yes" to God looks like.  However, when I consider saying "no" to something, and it feels like saying "no" to God, then "yes" is the way to go.

That's very helpful on the "yes" and "no" piece. My current process involved saying yes to whatever the choice was, then waiting to see if it felt like a "yes" to God. (Didn't always, had to recalibrate.)

pie for me. I haven't tried to make a GF pie crust, but I buy Gillian's at whole foods... but now that Betty Crocker has cake mix, I can pull out my old Cake Doctor book and play with cakes again :)

Thinking about your "go to discernment method." I must remember that. And when I'm done commenting here I'm going up above to see if my fave movies are on the list. :-)
