TOUGHEN UP OUR FEET
While speaking on the subject of rough
roads, an unknown author wrote...
"Be sure if God sends you on stony paths,
He will provide you with strong shoes."
And, we would like to add... "or He will
toughen up our feet."
When upon life's stoney path we walk,
Or along the cobbled street
Provide us with a pair of shoes
Dear Lord, or toughen up our feet
We cannot know what surface
Lies ahead, what obstacles we'll meet
So provide us with some well-soled shoes
Dear Lord, or toughen up our feet.
Someday we'll walk on streets
Of gold, smooth surfaces replete
But 'till that time arrives
Dear Lord, please toughen up our feet.
