Today is lost penny day. Here is a short story of my lost penny:
Today I lost my penny, I keep it in my right shoe. I was walking down Main street when I felt something in my shoe, so I took off my shoe and shook it out. That night when I got home and took off my shoe I could not find my penny! I guess I lost it because it was a Monday.
“If we’re gonna fly, we fly like eagles
Arms out wide
If we’re gonna fear, we fear no evil
We will rise
By your power, we will go
By your spirit, we are bold
If we’re gonna stand, we stand as giants
If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions”
-Lions by Skillet –
I found this quote the other day, (I can’t remember where)
” I hate when People see Me at the super market and are like:
‘Hey what are you doing here?’
And I’m like ‘Oh you know hunting elephants’.”
