Fear or Faith?

I’m going to be more vulnerable today than I want to be. This is because I think this topic demands it. I want to talk about fear—namely, one of my biggest fears.

My yard that was once a mess now looks good and well cared for. It is just a lawn, but I like knowing that I made it look good.
