Gods Salt Shaker

Think of yourself as a grain of salt in Gods, filled with love salt shaker Salt he adds to his eternal soup enhancing with love he savors There are a very few grains close up to the top They,the innocent ones are the first to drop Also many others in this big ole salt shaker Poured to the exact place to be used by our creator Yet,some stubborn grains still clinging to the sides In disbelief that it was He who created their simple lives If you feel that you've been moved, at any moment by our creator Think of these loving grains of salt, being shaken for the love he savors

    Seeing you write about God gives me hope that are existence is not meaningless because from what you told me after reading Journey Of Souls, you have experienced something that gives a deeper meaning to this.

    We are the salt of the Earth and it only takes a small amount of salt to permeate the intirety of the World. You are certainly not clinging to the side of the salt shaker. Thanks for adding some flavor.

    I can't remember exactly... isn't there an idiom (or some such) to the effect that salinity is the spice of life... or insanity is the lice of strife... or somethine like that... I guess it's gettin' kinda late... But it was nice reading this poem... Terry
