An headband with a Bible verse
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:30-31). A young boy runner who was disqualified from a state championship because he was wearing an headband with the Isaiah’s passage!
