Camo Girl

Aesop Fable~
A RAVEN saw a Swan and desired to secure for himself the same beautiful plumage. Supposing that the Swan’s splendid white color arose from his washing in the water in which he swam, the Raven left the altars in the neighborhood where he picked up his living, and took up residence in the lakes and pools. But cleansing his feathers as often as he would, he could not change their color, while through want of food he perished.

2 Peter 1:5
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

Teaching with stories...

This is how I'm going to teach myself to not be Camo Girl in public or with people who I fear will reject the 'real' me.

    I felt your pain as you talked about your fear. Don't worry, let yourself go little by little; isn't that how you also lost the weight?

Anyone worth being around will embrace the real you.

God does his best work when we are self doubting. Just believe!

    I'm glad to know the real you, at least the part you let me know. It's a little like the previews of a movie, seeing all the good parts :) I'd love to see your whole movie and really get to know you. The part of you I know is amazing, shine on Lizzie.

    OMGoodness, we really are related through the father.

Same here sweetie, I was hurt in college and later. Major defense mechanisms. I stopped being as friendly, affectionate, outgoing, and playful. I basically stopped being who God created me to be.

Awesome blog and lots to learn and think about. I am with you when it comes to the Word. The sermons always hits home and do not have to be exactly what the pastor is trying to get across. God is truly amazing!

Way to be organized, yo!! (Loving your "crafty corner", yarn collection emoticon )

I love the you in you. I love your spirit, sense of fun. Girl, you know I love me some Liz.

Always be yourself, you are so special. Show the world the wonderful person you are!!!! Those who love you will rejoice in it and those who do not will leave you alone, win-win (forgive me Lord)!!!! emoticon

    So many different lessons, wrapped up in the fable, the story of the judge's sentencing and your own story.
We have to be able to appreciate good and true, then recognize it in ourselves, finally LIVE TRUE to ourselves.
I am sorry you were hurt. Self-preservation is a strong mechanism; your sister's words must have sounded amazing to you. YOU are coming back, the real YOU. And the ones closest to you are seeing it happen... all at YOUR pace.
We all have a similar look to those looking in: emoticon
Be the emoticon with the emoticon emoticon emoticon
Don't forget your emoticon

    Good evening Liz. emoticon One of the strongest words that has had the most impact on my life were when God told me, "Be real". That was about 14 years ago. Talk about a scary word. No facade, no bushel to hide under and my own flawed self glaringly out there for the world to see. Be you Liz. You are amazing.
