Carried On

The footprints poem is pretty well known by now – the one where there are only one set of footprints in the sand and the writer asks where the Lord was during that time in her/his life and the answer indicated that this was the time when the Lord Jesus was actually carrying that person through their trials and struggles and that’s why there were only the one set of footprints. I got a snapshot of a different kind of “being carried”.

There are many scriptures in the Bible about eagles, lessons about how the mama eagle pushed the babies out of the nest and then quickly flies below them to catch them in her outstretched wings. There are lessons about eagles and how they use the winds of adversity to soar high above the storms.

This poem came from thought about some of both of these graphic word pictures.

Carried On

In timeless rest,
‘Neath wings of purest gold
By furnace fire tested,
I soar above,
Not on strength
Of my own,
But only that
Of my Savior’s love.

You are a hoot - face it, it doesn't rhyme...

A great thought. Not your best, but nonetheless good. Of course, that is only my opinion and what do I know? :) At least I'm honest about my opinion!:) Love you. Verna
