Once bitten, twice shy

I've met people who have been divorced who are now living with their beloved, refusing to get married once again. I used to enjoy pork chops until I got sick from them. Same thing with shell fish. Ten years ago, I would go swimming in the ocean four to five days a week during the summer, until I had a bad experience with rip tide and was rescued by a lifeguard named James. Once bitten, twice shy.

After hosting a home church that fell apart after less than a year, I was reluctant to start another one; but I eventually did anyway and it fell apart too, but we were blessed during its season.

Jeremiah 48:11
