Making Drifts Out of Snow Patches

This is akin to making mountains out of mole hills.  Nothing aggravates a situation like fear and doubt.  Negativity in fact is like jet fuel for trouble.  I’ve been so guilty of this.  Doubt plants gardens of difficulty while faith clears the path of progress.  I’m setting a determined path to cast my burdens on God for He cares for me.  I’ve been showcasing roller coasters we rode on in Busch Gardens to illustrate this point some.  The fear is from an illusion of danger…your mind runs wild telling you you’re in terrible danger yet over and over you go down the track as normal…you don’t die.  Could something happen?  Yes but fears often exaggerate the danger.  This particular ride pushes fear to the limit

.  It builds the fear…encourages doubts of personal safety.  The thrill of overcoming this draws me back again and again.  Should life be the same?  Fear immobilizes while faith empowers…I’d much rather face my fear than hide from it.  Victory is a rush!


Today is another beautiful dayDSC03711.  It’s crisp like early late fall or early springDSC03712.  The colors really pop…blue and greenDSC03713.  It’s a day belonging in a frame…sooo…DSC03714.  Hopefully you won’t think I’m a shady characterDSC03715but I predict better days ahead.  The drifts have shrunken downDSC03716.  The trees look artistic in their baronessDSC03717.  The sun is shining…what’s not to be encouraged aboutDSC03718?


  1. Fear immobilizes while faith empowers…I’d much rather face my fear than hide from it. Victory is a rush!
    This is so very true.

  2. Hello Joe!! Love that shadow shot and I love the words. Facing one's fears is often the beginning of truly living.

    1. Sounds like you'd be fine riding these roller coasters with me ;)
