let's all be brave.






I finished reading let's all be brave. by Annie F. Downs today.  It was good read.  The biggest take away for me was that we don't have to think braveness in terms of the big picture end goal.  We just have to be brave and take the next step on the road to where God is leading us.  One brave step at a time will lead us where God wants us, and that end goal won't seem so unattainable once you taken the other steps. 

The other point that is sticking with me is what bravery looks like.  Sometimes it looks like say yes, sometimes it looks like saying no, and I think sometimes it looks like waiting and doing the best you can at where you now. 

One more point she made in the book that is so true, and I've seen happen is the domino effect.  If one steps out in bravery, more are likely to follow.  That can change things; that can change the world. 

At one point in the book this song popped into my head ans has been sticking with me.  Courageous, by Casting Crowns.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
