Friday Five: Decisions, Decisions (deja vu edition)

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

2) To the Mountains or To the Beach

3) Coffee or Tea

4) Advent or Lent 

5) "Raindrops on Roses" or "Whiskers on Kittens"

BONUS:  Tell more about one of the pairs.  Why did you choose it?  Difficult or easy choice?  A story from your own experience?
