After spending more than half of our Trust30 days together trying to catch up, Tuesday night I was inspired by This: "Fear evaporated under these conditions"

I grabbed a piece of whiteboard
and my tube of toothpaste, went outside in the fading light and wrote This: "Jesus wept"

Jesus was human. He shed silent tears as the mourners lead him to the tomb of Lazarus, his friend. He shed silent tears for Lazarus' sisters Martha and Mary, and the people who mourned with them. Jesus wept for his friends, and the friends of his friends.

And Jesus wept for us.

I want to evaporate fear caring about people in the moment, struggling and weeping beside people in distress, living and celebrating joy as it happens in my life and in the lives of those around me. When we put down our shields to share our sorrow and our joy with the world, Life evaporates fear.

I am inspired by This.


Number 1 Passion

What is your #1 passion in life?  Now, imagine what would happen if you incorporated that passion into your life daily.  Write down your passion and keep it close to you.  Remind yourself of it daily, just like brushing your teeth. EH

thank you for your encouraging words! in the hours after this post, my daughter and i sat in my office and talked, then went out for dinner, where she mentioned seeing the toothpaste-covered board laying in my office... admitting it didn't strike her as odd at all, as if her mother writes with toothpaste all the time? it made me laugh
