For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

Gratitude 11--Miracle on the Hudson

Today an airliner crashed into Hudson Bay. The plane miraculously landed intact and sat emmersed to the windows until all the people were removed safely. It seems obvious to the me and those in my household that such an act could only be done by God. Yes, the pilot obviously executed the proper actions with great wisdom, but only the hand of God could sit it so carefully and hold it there until the passengers and crew were safe.

Thus, 155 reasons to be thankful. All 155 people on board are safe and sound tonight. Praise be the name of the Lord Most High!


  1. It is an incredible miracle. Praise God!

  2. I love that ... 155 gifts! Praise God! Oh ... and I tagged you. :) Look at the rules on my blog so you can play. Love you!
