Pink Flowers and a Funny Poem

This is one of my favorite pictures that I've taken. I took it while we were on a trip to Alabama. We stopped at a place called DeSoto Cavern. It was a great place to visit with the kids and they had the prettiest landscaping, so many good spots for taking pictures. I thought this would be a good picture to share for Pink Saturday. Be sure to visit over at How Sweet the Sound to see all the participants. http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/





I came across the best poem and thought I'd share that too. It is funny, but very true, and I knew it'd be a great thing to give us some Food for Thought. Besides, you're all probably tired of my ramblings for a bit.

Buttprints in the Sand

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 and 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 buttprints in the sand."

What a twist on the Footprints in the Sand poem but it might be closer to reality than the other. Sort of a wake up call....lol..... You site is very nice. I'll try to come back soon to read some of your other posts. Happy Pink Saturday.
