The waves crash

Pound the shore

Like so many times

They’ve done before

Impressions in sand

Of people who passed

Footsteps washed away

Our presence won’t last

Day soon ends

Surf pounds the shore

Beach clear and smooth

Impressions no more

New people tread

Where others did stand

Making their mark

In shifting sand

Tomorrow will dawn

As today fades away

Temporal steps

Are gone today

For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. – 2 Corinthians 5:1 (NASB)

  1. One of the lessons gathered from this blessed poem is that we follow so many others who have walked where we are at any given moment. We seldom know any of these other people, but we can bank on Jesus because He has walked where we are heading.
