I’m joining Lisa-Jo for 5 minute Friday.  I write for 5 minutes on a word prompt supplied by Lisa-Jo…no editing, no backtracking…just writing. You can join too, check out the details here.


Some days I do not feel brave.  But I know deep inside that some days I am.  I was brave the day I walked into the emergency room and saw all the blood and my son’s face so torn up I didn’t know if he would ever look “normal.”  Whatever THAT is!

I was brave the day I buried my daughter.

I was brave the day I picked up my life and all my belongings and move to the other side of the country.  Yes, I know some people move to the other side of the world.  But that day, for me, moving from the Midwest to the east coast WAS like moving to the other side of the world.

I was brave the day I attend the Allume conference not knowing a single soul.

And other days I am not brave.  I just crawl inside my shell and stay there. 

I want to be brave and live my slowly, developing God-sized dream.  But I am not that brave…yet…but I am getting there.  And someday, I’ll be brave enough to share my dream with others.

Right now, I am just brave enough to continue exploring, praying and waiting.  I know what I am afraid of and I wrote my fears on a rock and slowly, I am releasing those fears.

Are you brave? 
Do you know what you are afraid of?
