If it is your first time to link up you can link up anything that in on your heart!
This week I have been thinking about being bold.
It is not my personality at all to be bold. Truthfully, I say stuff on here that I would rarely say outloud in real life. I am non.confrontational, don’t like to upset people, don’t like to ruffle feathers.
If you went to a wedding…you would most likely see Chris & I trying to leave after we signed the welcome book. We tend to keep to ourselves. I am outgoing one on one but in a group, not at all.
A few people have made comments about pictures of me….I rarely smile confidently straight into the camera with a big smile. (I did this week that is why I got so many comments about it). I just struggle in this area. I can remember a time in my life when I would pull my hat down as low as it would go over my eyes. I guess in some way I was hiding. Trying not to get hurt.
I guess I could expand on this more (which at some point I will, but I WILL say I am getting better). I am finding confidence. It drives people close to me absolutely nuts. I am total optimist, cheery, happy, sees everything in life on the bright side kind of girl….except when it comes to myself. bleh.
But back to being bold…
This week someone very close to me was in an accident. This person is not a believer and believes that they will get to heaven on their good works alone.
I have felt heartbroken and sad.
Sad that I am not more bold. Sad that I hold back.
“The reality of hell should break our hearts and take us to our knees and the doors of those without Christ.”
If for some reason this pulls on your heart strings, talk to someone….email me if you want. Let’s talk about accepting Christ and surrendering control of your life to Him.
Phew. Okay…Let’s lighten things up! 😉
I adore the colors teal & peach. They really make my heart skip a beat. We have two rooms in our home that are different shades of teal. smitten.
