Sabbath Keeping


"I will lead blind Israel down a new path, 
guiding them along an unfamiliar way.
I will brighten the darkness before them
and smooth out the road ahead of them.
Yes, I will do these things;
I will not forsake them."

Chapter 1: 

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost...I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter 2:

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend that I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in this same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out. 

Chapter 3:

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in...it's a habit...but, my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately. 

Chapter 4:

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it. 

Chapter 5:

I walk down another street.


"Jesus answered and said unto them, 
"I am the way the truth and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me."

  3. Five chapters is one of my favorites.
    I have posted it often on IGH.
    Thank you for including the author . . .
    I guess I needed to have looked that up.
    Always saw it as unknown . . .
