She used her voice to write a book.
She emailed me to give a kind word.
She used poetry to convey what David’s didn’t say (after all, he wasn’t a woman)…
She gave grace when I couldn’t find it.
She reminded me of truth, in her pixelated square.
She wrote a funny line just in time. Whew–I needed that.
She said the thing I’d always wondered.
She loves old hymns but wrote her own.
She stepped out where God was leading even though it was a direction that sounded quieter and less affirmed.
She painted because she wanted to.
She unplugged because she needed to.
She unwound because she knew she was worth it.
She danced even though they said she couldn’t.
She gave her best and didn’t bad-mouth herself.
And she traded in what they said was important–
…for what was best of all.

I wrote this poem because I saw brave women…their messy and sometimes unpredictable art gave me the freedom and boldness to take a step too.
Never discount your courage. It’s contagious and we need that in the spinning world.
So fly high and glorify God with each flap of your wings.
