My First - Footprints in the Sand

Post by cdugger » Wed Oct 13, 2010 12:00 am

At the end of my time on Earth, I found myself walking along the shore with my Lord. Looking back, I saw two sets of footprints marking my life. At certain points, though, I noticed that there was only one set of prints.

“Lord, why did you leave me at those times?” I asked.

My Lord sighed and shook His head. “My son, I didn’t leave you at those times.”

Then He smacked me on the side of my head. “Those are all the times you wandered off to the nude beaches, moron! You knew I couldn’t go with you!”

I have read that story so many times that it gets old. I like your twist!

I liked it, a lot more than my neighborhood congregation would, I'd wager.
