silverware

There are now choices on the horizon.
A horizon that dawned rather quickly.
The waiting game seems to have fallen to the back of the line.
For now.
Decisions have taken the lead.
Decisions that include several forks in the road.
One fork leads to another.
No matter which prong is chosen.
Who knew there could be so many forks.

Arg, that's hard. More options can definitely make things harder. I'll pray for you. :)

I like Oneida myself!

Just Kidding... Having many choices is better than having none at all. We are certainly praying for you. The excitment on the horizon is great... God is preparing you for something really cool!

anne said...

I agree with Dan. I would much rather have to make a choice than be stuck with 'settling'. :)

Jean said...

More options does make choosing a bit more difficult, but Dan and Anne are right, having choices is better than none. :)

Thanks for all your prayers. They are appreciated!!!

If the forks are Oneida, then it is good to know the one's way down the path won't tarnish and rust. :)

So intriguing! So cryptic! Will so keep checking the blog to see which pattern you choose! Remember--buy American (you're not contemplating Canadian flatware, are you?)

Ed said...

is it better to use the spork? the one utensil that does everything?

Jean said...

I wonder if Canadians have a brand of spork wear? Hillary? Do you have an answer for this? :)

Hillary said...

Hehe, yep, we have the spork! (I love that I'm the expert for all things Canadian! :P ) And Cheeky, what's so bad about Canadian flatware??? ;)

Arg, the link didn't work. Click my name in this comment to see it.

Oh Hillary--no worries--I'm not picking a fight. Unlike Ed, I actually AM Canadian. Aye-uh! And love to stick it (get it? forks? stick it...not too funny, eh?) to him every chance I can get!

I was trying to surreptitiously say that I was hoping these "forks" weren't leading to Canada or other far away places...but I think I (as maybe all of us) have gotten a little befuddled in our own metaphorical parries--as if we're speaking different languages or on different levels, which may be the case.

Ennyhoo--no harm meant, hopefully none taken!

Jean said...

Thanks Hillary :)

No...as of right now, no forks leading to the Motherland though. Very good play on words though Cheeky. :)

Iris said...

more options always confuses me.
But knowing that God is overseeing all of them kinda helps out in the process...

Hillary said...

no no... Cheeky... I was being, uh, cheeky! ;) Just sillies, that's all! :)

SPORK! :D

It reminds me of Mork from Ork. Or the Swedish Chef. Bork bork bork!

Wow. Crazygirl is going to go now...

I like forks. More than sporks, as it were. I can't wait! to hear about the exciting Decisions. :)

Carbon said...

WOW, who knew forks of all topics could draw so much discussion :) I agree, too many choices.

Jean said...

It is a lot of choices and I will keep all of you up to date once the choices start being made. :)
