Five Minute Friday: Brave

Five Minute Friday

It's Friday... for one more hour and I'm gonna get Five Minute Friday in before I go to bed and start my Analog Weekend!

Five Minute Friday, where we write for 5 minutes of freedom without worrying about what comes out, without editing and backtracking, without it having to be just perfect.

Wanna join in? Be Brave... We would love to have you!!


Brave.... I was just going to skip this week, because Brave?!?! I'm not feeling it. And I'm tired of being negative so I wasn't going to write, but then I saw this video in my facebook feed! And while I am not a fan of rock music, this?!?!? Gave ME chills!!

Proud to be an American and so thankful for those who are brave and fight for my freedoms, even if I'm using my freedom to be a scaredy cat.

And someday, I'll stop being a chicken and try my hand at being brave and actually take another step toward my God Sized Dream because...

Joshua 1:9 ... Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.

He is with me... in my parenting, in my marriage, in my writing, in my creating, in my friendships and in my community...

I just need to be BRAVE, because God ... the God of angel armies is always by my side.


Community Conversation: What comes to your mind with the word 'Brave'? Do you consider yourself to be brave? Is there a verse you focus on when you need to be brave?

I'd be blessed to have you read some of my past Five Minute Friday posts and leave some comment love...


  1. Coming over from Five Minute Friday.
    Great post! Being brave isn't always easy, but it's good.

  2. I so often forget that the God of angel armies is always by my side. But when I step out of my comfort zone and do hard things, He is always there and those are the times I feel I am truly living. Keep pressing on toward your GSD! I am on the dream team as well :)

    1. thanks for the encouragement, dreamer friend! :)

  3. You know, even admitting your fears is a brave thing to do......just sayin'.......:-) Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Oh yes...I've got chills. Thank you for sharing this video. Sharing your heart takes bravery and that is what you've done here. Blessings to you.

  5. You? Not brave?? Seriously girlfriend, you put yourself out there. You have DAUGHTERS for goodness sake! You are brave in so many ways. :)

    1. HA, raising daughters was NOT on my to-do list!! God sure had other plans! :)

      Thanks for the encouragement, friend!

  6. What a great reminder. Thank you for that. Just for the record, you are brave. Very brave. But I know you don't always believe that (oh beautiful card maker!) so I'm just going to keep telling you. Rock on!!!
