It’s Friday and time for another link-up with Lisa Jo for Five Minute Friday. Friday is a time when we “write for five minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” You can join in the the fun HERE.
Don’t you love when you hear someone who we label as a hero respond to their own bravery.
I was just doing my job. I was just doing what needed to be done.
And, all though we look on in disbelief at a person’s ability to go above and beyond, I love the simple humility wrapped up in such a response.
I was just doing what needed to be done.
And when you strip everything else away, isn’t that what brave is? It is found in the choices and the decisions that we make every single day. Will we shrink back in fear or will we step forward in faith?
It comes in all shapes and sizes,
It’s the child who speaks up for the bullied during recess.
It’s the woman who faces the pain of the past and walks through fear to reach freedom.
It’s the man who speaks truth even though it hurts.
It’s making the terrifying choice of doing what your soul knows is right even when the world shouts you are crazy or it’s not safe!
