From 10 October 2006:
We are all too willing to make choices that aren't available in order to avoid the choices we must eventually face.
From 14 October 2006:
Not everyone wants to be well. The gospels don't record Jesus getting bogged in trying to make anyone want that. He doesn't shut anyone out, but He does move on. Perhaps that's part of recognizing the dignity of others' free will. I get frustrated when people don't seem to want to be well, but maybe I need to learn to let that go and move on.
