Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who come to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All they have to decide is what to do with the time that is given them.
I love that quote. It is one of my favorite movie quotes ever (I also love those movies). How often are we put in situations that we don't want to be in? That we wish that none of it had ever happened. One bad things turns to another, turns to another, turns to another. Sometimes, it's on accident, sometimes it's because of something dumb we've done. And sometimes, it's because we were given responsibility that we are asked to see through. When we came to Earth, we were given certain responsibilities that we were to follow through on. Many times, we don't live up to those responsibilities, and are put into situations where we'd rather not be. And when we're in those situations, often times we just like to wallow and feel sorry for ourselves. We try to figure out just what we did to get into this mess, and wish and wish and wish that none of it had ever happened. But, we're not the only ones who think that way. It's up to us to make the best of our decisions, and the situations we're in. It's up to us to do the right thing with the time that is given us. If we choose to start making things better, they'll get better. So make the best of what you've got, and it'll turn around. And always remember, when you're at your lowest, and things seem to be at their worst, you can always turn to the Lord and He'll help you out. He'll be your safety line, your guiding light, and your friend. Always know, He is there and He loves you.
