I am pinch hitting today, my first time, as your Friday Five RevGal.  Like the song “The Macarena” was for Los Del Rio, this could very well be a one-hit wonder, so thanks for playing!Today we play off of one of my favorite and most memorable Friday Fives to blog from: Decisions, Decisions posted by Songbird last July 23.  I went back to that post to make sure I had new choices for you to make.  I found out — again — that she was then, as I have been recently, in the midst of a discernment process and thinking about what goes into decision making.

A decision from history:  There is a chair that still sits in the Assembly Room of the Pennsylvania State House (Independence Hall). Legend has it that it was George Washington’s chair, the back carved with a half sun.  Benjamin Franklin would look at it and wonder whether it was a rising or a setting sun.  Eventually Franklin decided it was the hopeful symbol of the rising sun, a sign of the future of our new republic.
How do you decide? Check out the following pairs and tell which one of each appeals to you most:
1) Sunrise or Sunset
Definitely Sunset. I’m a night person and I believe the only reason to see a sunrise is if you’re still up from the night before. Besides, very few things beat sunset over the ocean.
2) To the Mountains or To the Beach
To the beach. I mean, the mountains are fine, but the point is to choose. I love a little beach house, a view, some fresh seafood, salty air, and a good book. Who needs a vacation?
3) Coffee or Tea
Duh. Coffee.
4) Advent or Lent
Enjoy both for different reasons, but if I have to choose, Advent. I have a brilliant Christmas music playlist, I love the lights, the food, the parties, it’s all fun!
5) “Raindrops on Roses” or “Whiskers on Kittens
Raindrops on Roses. I’m allergic to cats.
