Footprints in the sand
Footprints. Implies that there is more than one person. Implies that they are going in the same direction. Implies togetherness.
"...in the core of my being-in the depth of my soul- I knew there was more...or I HOPED there was more, for, if this was all there was to being a follower of Jesus, I was sorely disappointed, angry, and scared. There HAD to be more...."
Hey, I've noticed that all of our "chatting" on these topics are being done on my facebook page! Now, don't get me wrong...I LOVE it!! The more the merrier!! Just want to make sure that EVERYONE who wants to be included in these chats, these blogs, ARE being included! So, please, continue the dialog on my facebook as a friend or hop on this blog as a friend!! Either way, let's continue the chatting!!
Remember the movie, "The Other Sister?" Well, there were 3 sisters; the oldest one was a closet Lesbian, the middle one was slightly mentally set-back and the youngest was ignored because of the two older ones. The mom and dad were torn as to how to interact with their now adult-daughters. Hence the crux of the movie. At first it seems rather easy to ascertain just Who is the "other" sister....of course it's the slightly mentally set-back one....or, oh, yes! Obviously it's the Lesbian...Hummmmm.....perhaps, just perhaps it's the ignored one.....no, wait,it has to be the....!

Okay, we're in summer! Good ol' summer! Ideally the world spins a bit slower this time of year. You have time to "sit and think" with that raspberry lemonade, cold with ice cubes, softly 'clinking' at your side.....or do you?
