Footprints in the Dog Water

One night I dreamed that I was dipping my feet in the dog’s water bowl

And walking the lonely journey across my patio,

Leaving wet footprints along the way.

Soon I noticed tiny little footprints appearing behind mine.

This bothered me because I noticed

That the little footprints would sometimes follow my direction

And at other times they would wander off elsewhere.

It also bothered me because

The dog’s water was getting really dirty.

So I asked the Lord about it.

“Keep leaving a clear path to follow, My child,” He said.

“And get some fresh water for the dog.”
