Wear the armor
And risk what you
May not get.
Wear no armor
What you will get.
😉 What a decision….personally, I think I go about most often without the armor….

My armor is heaven-sent. I say a prayer and envision (and know) the armor is placed all around me.
That is amazing armor. 🙂
Yes it is. What is your armour?
Well, I think I may borrow from you if that is alright, and say the Lord has provided me mine. And I have to say I’ve picked up some earthly armor along the way. But I often put it down and pick it up…never really sure what to do with it. 😉
You don’t need to borrow my armor, he has plenty of it to go around! 😀 What is your earthly armor?
He does doesn’t He? 🙂 Let’s see, earthly armor…. humor. Sarcasm. Food and weight sometimes. My house. Anger. Many more I’m sure.
I thought you were going to say Karate. 😀
🙂 Hhhmmmm, funny that I didn’t huh? 🙂
Yes, after so many classes. There are many different types of armor. There are physical armor, spiritual armor, emotional and mental armor. Most people have a little (or a lot) of all.
Is this about wearing protection? Ha,ha Colleen, hope you don’t mind. Sometimes I just can’t resist!
Hahahahaha! Of course I don’t mind! 🙂 Not when you make me laugh like this. 😀 You never need to resist. Just make sure I’m drinking something when I read this!!!
Oh, so glad Colleen!! Nice to see people that still have a sense of humor!
🙂 I love a good play on my words! Especially when I’m not expecting it. I suppose I should always be prepared when I see your name. Just in case. 😉
So the most important thing is to wear the armor!
Or…… to take the chance????? 😉
What a great predicament! I always had my guard up – until I began to really live. (love, love, love the doodles!)
🙂 Thank you Stacey. I know that fear keeps some armor up. Or past pains. Or other reasons. But what do we miss when we wear it? And when we don’t wear it, what scars do we amass? And how well do we bare/bear them? So many questions! 🙂
Yes, my buddy Colleen. Take it knowingly or skip it knowingly. Fear is such a factor in the decision! And the costume doesn’t have to be the same every day.
Great point MDBM! I wonder how many different ways we don our armor? And I wonder about our bravest (each different and personal) moments of shedding that armor.
Take a chance! No-one can go through life unscathed. Sometimes, a little rain must fall…
❤ ❤ ❤
And then our armor gets rusty. 😉 ❤
…but we grow strong. ❤ ❤
True that! ❤
This is absolutely profound, Colleen. It’s amazing aha thou can say with your sweet illustrations. Brilliant!
🙂 Thank you Debra. Came from a moment of “ouch, that hurt” when I wasn’t prepared with my own armor. 😉
i tend to go into the world without weapons and sometimes it hurts. it’s worth it though, for the times when i feel the joys.
That is the dilemma, but it sure is worth the risk. I don’t think I would want to go through life without feeling anything Beth.
I think I’m missing something—lots of things because I have some hefty armor.
Just some things….it seems from your recent posts you have been gaining many things. 🙂 (By the way, did you turn comments off? Just in case you didn’t, I can’t comment and I don’t want you think I’m not, I can’t, but don’t know why.)
The eternal dilemma. Love this, CM. ♥♥
Thank you Robin. 🙂 ❤
I am open to all the possibilities, without my armor. This is the way I face each day, hoping and believing I will get more butterflies and love, this was so perfect for me, Colleen. I think you may don your protective devices but I don’t see you using armor!
Thank you Robin. I have to admit I have used armor. Less so now. But I had times in life where I had armor galore. But I gradually shed it. I don’t know that I have left it all behind, I’m sure if I needed it I would grab it again. But I hope not.
Well stated with the perfect images to go with. Personally, I love the heart and butterfly with sword action. Still, with the arrow…a reminder it is a risk. I think worth it to go without the armor more often than not. 🙂
I agree Niaaeryn. If we go all armored up every single moment, we might as well not go at all.
That means, you like? 🙂
I have armor. When some parts are unarmored, they are almost always pierced. Sometimes it is good, most often it leaves me vulnerable. I welcome it though, it is a lesson waiting to be taught.
I think thats a good way to look at it. “Lessons”. We can’t very well learn by being stagnant and bubble wrapped.
So true Colleen 😀
I like this old take on this expression and your latest post! 💐
Thank you Robin. This was the first one, and I wanted to see how I could ‘re-do’ it.
