Lion in the bed i made

SEVEN TIMES I WAS COWARDLY:

  1. When I wore my new wide-legged Cocoa-Cola pants to school on the first day of ninth grade, and the kids laughed at me so I never wore them again.
  2. The time they said Change that dress, it doesn’t glorify the Lord. So, I changed. Just like Cinderella.
  3. The time he exposed himself and then reminded me of Joseph in the Bible. Who do you think they will believe? he asked. You, I said. You.
  4. When  I didn’t win the writing contest in seventh grade and quit writing for 35 years.
  5. The time she said You’re just like Lily, and I knew she thought ‘Lily-likeness’ was a terrible thing. I cried and tried harder not to be like Lily.
  6. The time he screamed at me because his shirt wasn’t ironed, and I said Sorry and ironed the shirt.
  7. When I hid Eat, Pray, Love in the back of my desk because I was afraid they would think I wasn’t spiritual if I read “garbage” like that.

 

AND ONE TIME I WAS COURAGEOUS:

  1. The second time I ran a marathon.

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.   

take courage, friends.

You are not alone.
