Today I am joining my friends and Lisa-Jo again for Five Minute Friday. If you’re new here (welcome!) the rules are simple: Write, don’t edit, link your post to her page, and then share the encouragement like wildfire. You can do that, I know you can.
The prompt this week is: Brave
When I was younger, much younger, there was an album (yes I am that old) that I loved for my mom to play. It had songs like:
Doing the Pegion by Bert and Ernie
I got 2 eyes by Cookie Monster
1-2-3-4 by The Count
But my very favorite was It's Not Easy Being Green by Kermit the Frog. I think back then I just liked Kermit. However, when I became a mother and decide to pull out the old album to play for my own little ones just for old times sake. I begin to really hear the lyrics that my little green friend sang. I loved the lesson that he was teaching. Yes it isn't easy being green, looking different or being different in anyway. Kermit first acknowledged that yes things are not easy when you are different but there are are blessings in the differences. He carries on about how those difference can be seen as and advantage. By the end of the song Kermie has even decide that he is pretty proud to be green and different.
We all have our own version of being green. You know the thing that makes is different? That thing that we think makes us stand out, and not in a good way? What if we looked at ourselves and others with God's eyes. If we just saw ourselves has He does. What if we were brave and learned to be the best us He has called us to be?
So my friend be brave.....be green and proud of it today.
