“Please keep these elephants in the wild and let them have their journey. Let them look….how far they’ve come.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in reflecting today on how far I’ve truly come with God’s Help”)

Even the sun hasn’t risen as far

as you’ve come. You make the tallest man weep.

You’ve gone the distance from you to a star.

Shame you don’t know this. Have you been asleep?

I’ve been to hell and look how far I’ve come

back to you! I did not expect I would.

My journey was one of, “I’m just a crumb”

to “I’m just someone trying to make good.”

Take time to reflect on our journey’s end,

middle, begin, forward, then back again.

It’s what and who we find at every bend.

It’s God Who, Jesus What, How we begin.

We love God and others is rule of thumb.

We always pray this: “Look….how far I’ve come.”

  1. Maybe Armstrong had it right, “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” We individually take our one small step and let mankind leap 😉
