I saw a tiny little caterpillar
crawling on the backyard deck
I decided to follow him,
I had the time, so what the heck.
He inched his way forward,
at a slow but perfect pace
I could tell he wasn't in a hurry
this wasn't gonna be a race.
He made his way along,
and never missed a beat
he moved what seemed to be
a million ~ tiny little feet.
When he finally stopped,
he had a tree in his sight
it had a thousand leaves
to his joy and his delight.
He found his way up the trunk,
and rested upon a leaf
he chomped away on it
giving his hunger pains relief.
It's funny how this caterpillar,
reminds me of God's ways
and how I'm in such a hurry
as I travel about my days.
I wonder how much I've miss,
while on my frantic pace . . .
it seems I am always in a hurry
to get a taste of God's grace.
Perhaps if I slow down,
I will see what's in front of me
and to my joy and His delight
a happier camper I will be!
