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.

When Love Stands Wide-Open

And after running errands all afternoon, I ran by the house to pick up the kids and take them for shakes. When we got home, the front door of the house was standing wide-open. WonderGirl was out the truck door before I got it stopped. She was concerned about the animals, I was concerned about...other things. She stopped at the front door where all of our dogs sat in a line waiting for her. Yes, a ...wide-open door with dogs barking in multiple backyards, and ours sat at the door jam and waited for us. A Lab mix and Beagle/Dacshund just sat there with a tiny poodle and waited for us.

Sometimes God doesn't scream I love you.
Sometimes He just waits for you to get home so He can show you as soon as you walk in the door....that is standing wide open.
