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.

It's the Little Things

I posted this on my writer's page on Facebook, but I thought I'd share it here.

I had no idea how precious...inside jokes were...until there weren't any.

*          *          *          *        *
One of the greatest pieces of healing I've found, and it happens so slowly and quietly it nearly sneaks in without being noticed until it is suddenly there, and you realize what you've been missing...isn't anymore...

Inside jokes.

This morning I am blessed with the joy of laughing across distance with two wonderful friends with whom I share inside jokes. That makes my heart so full I don't even have words.
