Today I saw someone post this on social media. I laughed. Perhaps we can laugh together on a Monday.
BUTT PRINTS IN THE SAND
[Otherwise known as the sequel to “Footprints.” Ten years later and no change.]
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 some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord,”What have we here?”
Those prints are 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 walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.”
“You disobeyed,you would not grow,
The walk of faith,you would not know,
So I got tired,I got fed up’
And there I dropped you on your butt.”
“Because in life,there comes a time,
When one must fight,and one must climb,
When one must rise and take a stand,
Or leave their butt prints in the sand.”
