Ed Carson reflects upon the "Footsteps in the Sand" poem:


"John, when I looked back on my life and saw only one set of footprints in the sand, I realized that the Nintendo 64 had been carrying me the whole time!"

There is an alternate version of this classic entitled "Buttprints in the Sand"

Yeah, Art, I love that one too, but the bad theology of it (law trumps grace) makes it problematic. how about one of the geniuses on this site take that on as a re-write, with appropriate theology.
I guess the buttprints would come when we said ":Hey Jesus, put me down---I can take it from here" and not just when he just gets tired of doing all the heavy lifting.
Sim? Tim?

Yeah, that's how I broke my Atari 7800. Good times.
John, just wanted you to know that I stop by sometimes.
Take care.
