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.

And the winner is....


I only had two comments, which means either I'm not very popular since I haven't been blogging much, or y'all just aren't living the creative life at the moment. :-)

Marina, you didn't mention wanting to be part of the game, but if you do, let me know!

So, Amelia, do you want me to drop the birdhouse by, have lunch, go camping, give it to you when we pick strawberries...? :-)

Now I can't wait to see what Amelia does. If you've dropped by her place and seen the pictures of the girls' room, you know she is very creative. Might be smart to see what shows up on her blog because you might want it! And even if you don't want to be part of the game, you need to visit because she is a gifted writer whose inspiration is the Holy Spirit, and He gives her some powerful truth to share. It's good stuff, folks. Bless yourself and give her a visit.


  1. Guess I better get crafting!

    I vote birdhouse when we go pick strawberries. Doesn't that sound fun? There is a strawberry festival down near San Antonio next weekend, but I couldn't talk Thomas into it this year.
