Fear or Wisdom?

2019 bears on driveway.jpg

A couple of weeks ago my neighbor reached out giving me a heads up that there were four bears at the bottom of my driveway. I was on my way out to give a talk which I was grateful for because typically I would have been walking home from my walk with Georgia at that time (divine appointment😊).

Yet since that day I haven’t been walking as regularly with Georgia. 

Is my hesitation fear, or is it wisdom?

Isn’t that line blurry sometimes between fear and wisdom?

This week I have been back out there walking with Georgia yet I have my airhorn with me just in case🐻

I share this with you today in case you too have paused from moving forward with something you know you need to do.

I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

May we ask ourselves, is it fear or wisdom holding us back? If it’s wisdom leading us, may we keep following it. Yet if it’s fear, which is what has been leading me, may we recognize that. Then may we seek what is ours to do (ie for me - carry an airhorn) so we keep moving forward with what we need to do and not allow fear to lead us. 

With love and hope,
