Do it anyway….



When was the last time you were scared?

Not running from a bear-  the moments before car accident- that dreaded phone call….. but a different fear..

The one that does not look like sweat on the brow but rather the flip flop in your belly?

What did you do? …. Did you stop and turn away. Pretend that the insult was not happening? Did you cry? Did you call your mom, for those of us still blessed with earthly moms that is…..

I make so pretense on this blog- I am discussed my fears with you… perhaps they are not much different than yours…

Mine is for the future.. Have I made a good choice? Is this next step going to all pan out?

Ladies, my friends.. I have no guarentee

and nor do you…

So what do we do?





I say we learn from the strength of women before us.

We learn from those who arose long before the sun and worked late into the night..

Who had arms that were strong..

Who extended their hands to poor…

Who reached low to the needy..

Who spoke wisdom… and gained the respect of her elders…

Who feared the Lord..

Who never let her lamp go out…

Don’t hear me say- ” WORK MORE, HARDER, BE BETTER…..” there is enough of that voice in our own mind…

The truth I speak tonight to my own heart says..

Ones before you did…

They were equipped…

as are you….

as am I…

So may we rise early, work late and bend low…. in fear -in reverence- in confidence.

Words to keyboard, not quite the same as pen to paper, but for now in a season of flurry and tiny chaos, this will do. Though I long for the feel of graphite under hand I am grateful for fingers that work the same. May you join me as I seek to find joy in the ordinary?
