T.C. Hamlett wrote this funny little poem that I think has great meaning:
Two frogs fell into a can of cream,
Or so I’ve heard it told.
The sides of the can were shiny and steep;
The cream was deep and cold.
“Oh, what’s the use?” said No. 1,
“Tis fate – no help’s around.
Good-bye, my friend! Good-bye sad world!”
And, weeping still, he drowned.
But No. 2, of sterner stuff,
Dog-paddled in surprise,
The while he wiped his creamy face
And dried his creamy eyes.
“I’ll swim awhile, at least,” he said –
Or so I’ve heard it said –
“It wouldn’t really help the world,
If one more frog was dead.”
An hour or two he kicked and swam.
Not once he stopped to mutter,
But kicked and swam, and swam and kicked,
Then hopped out via butter!
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13
Never give up.
Keep the faith.
Swimming Through the Cream of Life...
