i guess i am kind of a weirdo. when i close my eyes and imagine my dreams instead of hollywood i imaginefeeling the wind,water & tears on my face and the goosebumps as the red sea closed in and won the heroine in one of the most epic stories ever written!
and if i had to close my eyes and click my heels..ok it might not be glittery red stilettos maybe more like a pair of worn in converse--i would wish
that i would be BRAVE in love
can i be transparent with you? can i take a risk here?
ok..i want to cup my hands and whisper it in your ear because it is a gift. ready?
...i want to live an epic story...
one where God is my Author. He is the Hero...i am the heroine. that is my fairy tale still...at 45
there. i said it out loud. hit publish now let me go and hide in my closet. do you ever feel like that when you are taking a risk and being brave?
like maybe you shouldn't have said that and you replay the words over and over in you mind and mentally abuse yourself...yeah. i know that scenario all to well.
well let me let you in on something i am learning.
the characters in the stories in the bible are just like you and me i believe the main difference in their stories and ours is that they
lived life afraid. the did life afraid. they were courageous. they were BRAVE they were vulnerable. they took risks loving and being LOVED by God..it was hard stuff. read it for yourself
but the experiences they had...they motivate to this day. one of my favorite things about the Bible is that it is alive. the words are LIVING words they have power and i can't get enough of that.
P.S. the Hero always wins in the end
i put that wish on a necklace
**all images are by my daughter nikki:) and the pregnant model is my little sister who is expecting her first baby in a little over 5 weeks..talk about brave in LOVE!
