I've got the Veggie Tales song, "God is Bigger Than the Boogieman" stuck in my head, and it's a good thing. There are a zillion things I'm looking forward to about school (I know, I know-- I owe you an update!), but there's someone I'm very afraid of whom I will almost certainly run into on campus.

But God is bigger. Bigger than him, and bigger than my fear. Who knows-- perhaps by being in proximity again, God will help me to see this man as the size he really is, and not as the giant I've turned him into. He's not huge, and I'm truly not small.

Prayers toward that end are, of course, always welcome.


  1. oooh, you've got them.

  2. It's amazing how much dread can make people bigger. It sounds like you've got the right attitude.

  3. Prayers for sure, Di. I love your courage and honesty both in embarking on this new adventure and reflecting honestly on all aspects of it!

  4. Totally - you've got my prayers, too.

    I saw a woman who intimidates me shake hands with someone the other day and her hands were shaking. Such a little thing, and yet now I remember that we are equals.

  5. I am praying. I cannot imagine someone that is bigger or better than you. He must be very jealous of you and your beautiful self.

  6. tis a terrible feeling to not want to see someone. I do know the feeling. However, I do not know a thing about veggie tales.


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
-Saint Molly Ivins
