Yeah, I might be afraid of the dark…

The only part of development that fear has a place?

At the start. As you’re pushing it out of the way. Moving forward towards the dream.

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

    The dark is indeed a fearful place. Especially when you have been reminded what real fear feels like.

    Now, this is the place where I say something trite, perhaps quote a scripture or two, then leave off with an encouraging word. I don’t have that, of course. But, dark has its power because we know what the light is. And you know the Light. So though it is hard right now, ever, seemingly always, you know the Light. And the dark will not always prevail or seem so overwhelming.

    I am sorry we do not have more tangible comforts for you right now (like say, a cold NA dessert?) but we are thinking of you and keep you in our prayers.

      Thank you for this. I am sharing it, and reading it over. Because right now, I need a mantra. Okay, it might not be a Blizzard, but it’ll do. ha!

    Wise words, Quinn. Sheila, thanks for sharing on FB. It looks like you’re having many varied experiences in Botswana. Sorry to hear about the recent darkness. My thoughts are with you!
