We set a timer and just write whatever comes to mind. We don’t worry about grammar, punctuation and whether is looks right or not. We just write because it’s what we love to do.

Risk.. the thing that I hate, really I do. I find it really hard to put myself out there and risk criticism or harsh words, or even the nice criticism. It would be so much easier to just make a nice little bubble of safety for myself but what kind of life is that? To love is to risk and we as Christians are called to love above all else. So I guess that means we have to take a risk now and again and just love people and trust God with outcome. That is soooo much harder then it sounds. But in the end how can we call our selves Christians if we don't reach out to others like Jesus did? I think this is something that I will always struggle with.. thank you Jesus for being so patient with me in this area. I have come a long way but still have quite a ways to go.
So here is to taking a risk and actually hitting publish with this little post.. it seems so big even though it is only a few paragraphs long.
