her neck. She terrified me!
Every time Miss Crank talked, her eyebrows would go up ‘n down in a capital V on her forehead. She’d always call on me ta’ go ta’ tha’ chalkboard in front of tha’ class ta' do a math problem. I was afraid 'cause math was not my favorite subject, 'n I knew I was gonna mess up.
Miss Crank scared me sa’ bad, I decided I wouldn’t goin' back. Tha’ next day I spent in tha’ woods across from our house. In those woods I wasn’t scared. In those woods I was Annie Oakley!
I found a tree that was bent over. I climbed up on it ‘n bounced up ‘n down like I was ridin’ a horse. As I was ridin’, I made up this song.

It calms my fears, ‘n drives my troubles away.
just a look - my Mamma. Tha’ next day Daddy took me ta’ school himself. That day we got our math test back. I got a B. Ya’ know what Miss Crank wrote? - Good job, proud of you. Maybe Miss Crank wasn’t so scary after all.
Mamma says ta’ put your trust in God. When ya’ fully trust in Him, fear disappears!
Psalm 56:11 "In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me."
Things Ta' Think 'bout:
1. What are your fears?
2. Are ya' puttin' your trust fully in Christ?
Lord, thank ya' for calmin' our fears. Forgive us when we don't trust ya' like we should! In tha' name of Jesus, amen.
