Failure Is Not My Name
I will no longer be named failure.
Failure was never my name.
I was sometimes exhausted
Sometimes stretched too thin
But these things are not failure.
In the sharing of faith, to live authenticity is most important.
In my exhaustion I taught gentleness.
In my perseverance I taught strength.
In my stress I taught courage, patience, and faithfulness.
My name was never failure.
My curriculum was the act of living faith, of building trust, of relationships built in acceptance and care.
I was never a failure. I was important. I made a difference.
