Encouragement Is Nourishment

Road

Today, over at Faith Barista, we are jamming about encouragement. We are discussing the topic where we feel we could use a little (or a lot) encouragement. Truth be told, couldn’t we all use some?

*************

I love to travel. The thought of the open road gets me all excited.

I love to meet people. I love to hear stories. I love to write.

I love vintage. Treasure finding. Flea markets. Decorating.

The Junk Gypsies are my heroes.

East coast, Maryland girl. Down home, Tennessee woman. Mid-West mama, lovin’ Ohio.

Kickin’ it up in cowboy boots in  Texas. In awe of the Tetons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Love ’em all.

I love living in the country and the every day of small town life.

I thrill at the bright lights and diversity and interesting shops in the cities.

I am passionate about rights for the disabled. I want to help where I can.

I am constantly in awe of my Jesus. His name is above all others.

I’m not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Life has been a roller coaster. A heartache and a party.

Love. Laughter. And Mud. (nobody’s perfect)

So, that is kind of me….as best as I can describe myself.

I guess, at age 43, I pretty much know who I am. What I like. People I love.

But, where do I fit in? How do I meld together my talents with my interests?

Is anyone out there, “living the life”? Do you wake up in the morning, knowing you

are exactly where you are supposed to be? Doing what you love?

I know, no one’s life is perfect……and I wouldn’t want perfect anyway. That’s boring.

How do you live out your dreams?

Please share your advice. I read every comment.

Your words matter.

They really do.

  1. I’m smiling right now, thinking of how your life has pulled together. I’m sure it wasn’t all puppy dogs and ice cream all the way. To be in a place where you know who you are, and whose you are – to be comfortable. That makes me smile for you.I have no advice – except – that 43 is the perfect age 🙂 God bless and keep you and each and every one of yours Dawn.

  2. Well, hmm… I do know I am where I am supposed to be doing what I am supposed to be doing. Because God keeps verifying it. I question Him about a million times a day, and feel a failure twice that often.. ok. Maybe it’s not THAT bad! lol But I know I am in His hands, and that’s a really good thing!

    Hi Dawn, it’s Bonnie here. I wanted to quietly slip in and let you know that your questions are really beautiful. I think it’s a potpourri of opportunities, like the ocean waves coming onto the shore. Sometimes, in greater measure, sometimes it’s a quiet break. Sometimes, it’s just in between time. But, I do think we have the freedom to discover more and more about the joy of who God made us. Lord Jesus, I pray that you offer more opportunities for Dawn to enjoy who it is you’ve made her. I think she’s wonderful and I know you do too. I’d love for her to experience this more and more everyday. Amen.
