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.

Every minute counts.

Minutes make up hours.
Hours make up days.
Days make up weeks.
Weeks make up months.
Months make up years.
Yearts make up a lifetime.

And every lifetime counts.

YOUR lifetime counts.

  2. What a great reminder. Thanks Jerri.

  3. Sharilyn,
    Thank you for noticing!

    Yes, I did change the colors. It was all icy here yesterday, and I was going to go with a wintry blue and white theme, but then I liked the green. Then I ended up with the blue. Yellow seemed the obvious third choice, so in the middle of winter, spring just showed up. I find that to be very much like God. Don't you think?
