SLIPS AND FALLS

SLIPS AND FALLS
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Daily walk.
Slipped.
Fell.
Snow covered ice,
Fell to the right.
Leaned in …
Caught fall.
Elbows extending,
Shoulders shifting,
Feet lifting.
Ouch!
Muscle strain,
Deep pain.
Single strand of thought:
“The problem with accidents is that you can’t see them coming.”
-Winnie the Pooh
~~~
Indeed.
Stand up.
Brush off.
Move about.
Stretch.
~~~
Today’s slip;
Tomorrow’s bruising.
Aches and pains ...
And muscle strains.
Still …
The walk is good.
~~~
“The problem with accidents is that you can’t see them coming.”
Life is a walk.
Accidents part of it.
Slips and falls.
Inevitable.
~~~
See the One,
Who walked before you.
Call on Him …
He won’t ignore you.
Jesus.
The slip-less,
Fall-less,
Flaw-less,
Sin-less One.

Calls you.
Implores you.
Gently restores you.
Urges you....
Keep on walking!
~~~
All of life:
Physically,
Relationally,
Emotionally,
Spiritually.
Includes ....
Slips,
Falls,
And desperate calls
To God.
~~~
Options:
Stay down
Or stand up.
Quit walking.
Keep walking.

You decide.
~~~
Slips and falls.
Teachers in disguise.
Not disenablers.
~~~
Stand up.
Brush yourself off.
Stretch your muscles.
Get moving.
Remember:
Bruises,
Breaks,
And your mistakes …
Are all part of the walk.
~~~
Enjoy the scenery:
Snow
Or Greenery.
Live in the moment
You’ve got.
A walk in the park.
A light in the dark.
Risk is a piece of the journey.
God’s on the journey with you.

“The Lord upholds all who fall;
And raises up all who are bowed down.”
Psalm 145:14
