A Brave(r) Me…

I used to be afraid… not that I am completely fearless now… but I was a mouse of a person compared to who I am now… I was afraid to ask questions… I was afraid to open unopened food packages for crying out loud .. I was afraid to put things away in the “wrong place”…

I look back on my time as a wife… and I remember the fears I had that I was not capable of doing things on my own… first it was driving a car… and now I can… then it was staying by myself at night… and now I can… then it was extended parenting by myself (like when my husband is on a trip)… and now I can…

 But I am so blessed to look back on my life and see the places I have been strengthened… to see the brave breathed into me by the experiences that God provides for me… and there is hope for the rest of my fears.

  1. someone wise once said: courage isn't the absence of fear, it is acting in the face of it.
