3. A Quote:

“The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable
and imperfect. When we don’t have that, we shape-shift and turn into chameleons; we hustle for the worthiness we already possess.”

~Brene Brown

8. Something on my heart:

This is week has been so so so BUSY!! I have not had a week like this in a long time. IT has been good but packed…I think a SOUL OASIS sounds good right about now. –I’m thinking a long HOT BATH.

There must be quite a few things a hot bath wont cure, but I don’t know many of them. – Sylvia Plath 



Visited with 3 friends, worship practice, fixed a Wi-Fi problem, fixed a printer scanning problem, set up 3 tablets, visited with my grandma, put together the worship books, got photo’s from two people from the dodge ball youth competition last weekend to another person for video making…..and oh man many many many other things… lets just say I am the TASK QUEEN. LOL


10. Something Cool:

I found an awesome APP for drawing and coloring ! I will share when I show you what I am creating….FEEL THE SUSPENSE! lol



Friendships of Love

April 17, 2012




The video at that link was done by CNN about Brene Brown and her research about Vulnerability.  I recently got her blog emailed to me called : Walking the tightrope: thoughts on vulnerability and hurt  – and she talks about the posting of this video has been less than “ a pleasant experience.”

Talking about vulnerability and being vulnerable isn’t always easy and at times can be quite hurtful.  BUT IT IS WORTH IT?

Brene in the blog was taken back by the cruel and unkind words about her in the comments of the video…they were to be removed.

Watch Brene on TED TV was amazing. She is the reason we decided to do a month thinking about Vulnerability.

It has been eye opening for us.

NONE of us are BULLET PROOF as much as we would like to be.  Wishing to be bulletproof  had for years caused me to want to repress my feelings when I am hurt, pretending that I am untouchable.   It made me want to detach and move on, leaving my feelings behind. ( who needs those anyway when thinking is far more easier to deal with)  But I have found doing this puts me in a kind of round the mountain cycle, where I long to be free to be me but choosing not too enslaves me and sacrifices the real me for the imaginary bulletproof me.

We all hide in some way or another… not saying what we really think, not saying anything just so we can skip the possible rejection, choosing not to share our hearts, living detached, disconnected and lonely.

We have been hiding since the time of Eden when the great disconnection happened – SIN! Christ came to break us out of that bondage and set us free.

Is it time to break out? I think so!

While vulnerability can really bite is worth it to just be the YOU God created you to be!

F of L – Friday Fun Facts

Pictures I like-002


I will be adding Facts I like and ones Tina Shares with me each week on Friday.


1. A photo quote that is very telling and since we are talking Vulnerable this month it is very fitting:



2. A song:

3. A little bit of “us”:


We are part of the Youth Team at our Church – we are those two super SMILER’S there in front!


4.  A good Quote from a great author:

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
Brene Brown


5. A video from that author :

This video was the beginning of our VULNERABLE journey here at Friendships of Love. It is so eye opening and really gets you thinking down deep into the levels within self that when affected cause real change.
