Courage. What makes a King out of a slave? Courage.
What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage.
What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist or the dusky dusk?
What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage.
What makes the Sphinx the 7th Wonder? Courage.
What makes the dawn come up like THUNDER?! Courage.
What makes the Hottentot so hot?
What puts the “ape” in ape-ricot?
Whatta they got that I ain’t got?
From the Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion
It takes courage to live your dream. It takes courage to ignore distractions from those around you. It takes courage to do have the strength to make changes to live a better life. It takes courage to listen to the truth of your soul.
My friend Katie Frantz has been going through a challenging period in her life and she is a model of courage in many ways. Even though she has been in major “healing mode”, she had the courage to be on stage last weekend. Check her out – isn’t she fabulous?!
Great things happen when you have the courage to take a stand and embrace your power. And you ARE powerful!
This weekend, do something to move out of your comfort zone. Have the courage to take a stand, do something you’d never do or say something you’ve been wanting to say for a long time (and with love!). Seize your courage from the angels!
With love, Rev. Nina
