Who we are...

Who we are...

charmed by choice, the blog has been a long thoughtful walk through choices. Ultimately, choices to be resilient.
Our family is one of the thousands of real life examples from this recession ...
we have experienced jobloss, mounting debt, property depreciation....
After spending some time hovering in the freak out mode...we have decided there is a choice to be made.
We can choose to stare at all that's challenging us,
or search and concentrate on all the incredible examples of resiliency.
Come along and be amazed at how many people live resiliently...
recovering finacially, emotionally, physically, spiritually...
We've all been told not to stare... but I invite you to stare at all that's resilient.
Let's be inspired and inspire each other.

Stop Screaming for Help... Be Resilient

Resiliency means different things to different people.
For me it's definition continues to evolve.

The video I am posting today has had the most powerful impact on me to date as an example of resiliency. 

I see this clip as a snapshot of how resiliency is a continuous act of discovering the gifts God has already given us and honing them, as God carefully, lovingly watches over us. 

To recognize that a real rescue, isn't screaming for help and having the problem at hand solved, it's leaning into the problem and developing the gifts God has placed within us.  Using what we have, developing skills to move into the life God has planned for us.
Getting picked up and dusted off, doesn't develop resiliency. 

A huge thank you to Mark Walz for sharing this amazing video at Granger Community Church this weekend so that I could continue to share it with you.
