How many times do you say, "Imma do me, boo." or "I have free will here on earth to do whatever I desire!" This may make some of you mad but this life is not about whatever you desire or want.

Free will actually means that the Creator knows the choices that you will make (both good or bad). Free from what will; better yet, free from Whose will? Lets see here…….. The option of will was given to you at the time of birth, you either follow it or not once you are older and become aware. It doesn’t mean free reign without repercussion.

A week ago Saturday my mother, grandmother, and I were sitting outside enjoying the weather and each others company. The cold front had gone and we just wanted to relax outside. I went in the house to get the trash to burn (yes we burn trash in the country) because it wasn’t that windy. My bigmomma stayed close to the house while mom and I pulled up a lawn chair and set by the fire. I went to get a rack to make sure the fire would not spread, while mom was watching. As I got back, the fire proceeded to go to a near by tree as well as to some dry brush near the trash pile. I told her I guess I should get the hose, and ran to the water hose.
