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.

The Sun is Giving Light, and I'm Giving Thanks

Thankful for
...the fabulous Texas weather...
...Scott at Cabela's with his bag of empty shell casings that "I don't know why I've kept all these months". I do. Because God knew WonderGirl would need specific cases for her mech suit, but more than that, she needed to see Him provide them.
...the nice lady at the Walmart I've never been to who directed to me the bread so I could finally find the last thing on my list and leave.
...the wonderful people who helped with math this week. One day I'll blog about it. For now, just...thank you... shoes that do wonders for allowing me to exercise and lose the weight hurting my back while not making my back hurt worse. If you have ever had back problems, you know what I mean.
...forbearance...the process...Holy are breathtaking...

What's on your thanksgiving list this morning?
