It's Not Just My Story

I got a card in the mail last week from a favorite 12-year-old. She’s the daughter of a friend of mine and someone I spend a good amount of time with.

I love getting snail mail — handwritten, thought out, and no delete button or ability to edit. In fact, halfway through her card she stopped her content to apologize for having to switch pen ink color. (That’s adorable.) And then, as I kept reading, this one little sentence came into view…

“I KNOW Jesus is going to bring you the perfect husband one day.”

I wrote about that card – what it meant to me and what it reminded me- over at (in)courage today. I’d love for you to pop over there and consider for a few minutes what it would mean to the people in your life if they were allowed to walk through the unknown with you.

No, it isn’t always fun and it’s not easy, but I think the faith it builds in you and in your people makes the vulnerability SO worth it.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this.

(Also. Yes. That’s the Let’s All Be Brave mug on display in the picture. If you don’t have one yet, grab one today!)
