It seems like everyone’s talking about vulnerability these days and the importance of showing up– being real–getting into the arena and letting others know we’ve all got stuff, but together we can do amazing things!!
I have really enjoyed Brene Brown’s book, “Daring Greatly”; and Glennon Doyle Melton’s recent “Momastry” blog blitz was INSPIRING! While I’m from another part of the country, with a vastly different background, (and let’s face it– I’m also more than a few years older than either of these Brave, Beautiful Women) God has given me a similar message to share.
I think, when a message is important enough, He selects many different instruments with many different voices and gifts, so that a greater variety of people can be reached.
So here I am with my little piece of the puzzle- my candle if you will– pointing to the reason I can stand at all, hopefully encouraging others in the process. I may come tentatively… I may be trembling at the knees… and I guarantee my little offering will be every bit as messy as the inside of my handbag 🙂 — But I’m here!! Thank you, Abba, Daddy– I am here!
