Fire is a tool utilized only by human beings. Since the beginning of time, humans have congregated around its warmth for light, protection, and company. Every other creature on the planet fears fire, but we've been given the unique ability to harness it, to use its power to improve our lives. Not only that, but poets and artist have used fire to describe the God-given spark that wakes us up in the morning and fuels our purpose and passion. Whatever the context, fire is not to be ignored.
Sisters, this is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts.
We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough, not a good enough mom, not pretty enough, not brave enough, not smart enough, not wealthy enough. Instead we will choose to tend our God-given fire. We will love our children with an all-consuming love and use our words to warm the world. We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most.
When our homes feel cold, we'll light a fire.
When a friend has lost her spark, we'll fan her flame.
When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.
In order to do this we will live expectantly, surrender daringly, and breathe freely.
