Life is more important than fear

Our Bounty

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

~ Ambrose Redmoon

My mind has always been a basket of dreams. Dreams so big that stretch so wide, no one person could ever fulfill them all. But lately, my path towards these dreams is becoming more clear. Each idea fitting together like the pieces of a puzzle.

It’s as if each new step I am supposed to take illuminates before me, just as my foot hits the ground. It’s exciting, its exhilarating, its nothing short of pure magic and the Grace of God. I’m in awe and while fearful, I am courageous. The final outcome far outweighs the discomfort it will take to get there. I believe with all my heart that something wonderful is about to happen.

As I accept each of my new gifts and relish in the awesomeness of it all, I find myself coming across another and then another, like dandelions in a field just waiting for me to pick them. Suddenly I know, these dandelions are meant for jam.

Each one forming together to make a life so sweet it tastes like jelly, excuse me as I take some time to spend with my loves, their sticky fingers and their  jammed up faces. Life is very good.

Anything wonderful happening in your life right now? How have you been blessed recently?
