1/24/2023 – Decisions…

From Maia Mikhaluk in Kyiv (333rd day of ruzzian invasion): Last year around this time we already lived in the shadow of the war. By then, we kept reading in reprinted western articles about specific dates of possible ruzzian invasion. The Embassies were beginning to evacuate their families from Kyiv, multinational companies were urging their Ukrainian employees to consider relocating, and western missions started pulling missionaries from the field. One had to be blind and in complete denial not to see that war was inevitable. It was decision time for many people. The whole of 2022 has become a year of decisions about where to be, who to be, how to behave, what to make a priority, how to survive and stay sane, and so much more.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” (J.R.R. Tolkien)

  1. “There are other forces at work besides the will of evil. I can put it no plainer than that you were *meant* to find the Ring, and *not* by its maker,” –Gandalf
    In a letter, J.R.R.Tolkien spoke of “the Author of the story (by which I do not mean myself).”
