Butt Prints in the Sand

Postby melrose » Sun Jun 11, 2006 6:33 pm

One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.

But then a stranger print appeared.
And I asked the Lord, "What have we here?"
The print is large and round and neat,
"But Lord, they are too big for feet."

"My child," He said in somber tones,
"For miles I carried you alone.
I challenged you to live by faith,
pick up your cross and walk in grace."

"You disobeyed, you would not grow,
you would not stand against the flow.
Your neck was stiff, your ears were shut!
So there I dropped you on your Butt."

"Because in life there comes a time,
when one must fight, when one must climb.
When one must rise and take a stand,
or leave their butt prints in the sand."

I was going through the Poems here -- and came across this one, and decided to re-read it again... a few times... very very slowly.

It amazes me how much I can identify and understand........ when I read it.... very slowly. :lol:

Thanks again for posting it!
