ten little toes

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”  Isaih 52:7


Two little feet, ten little toes,

running and jumping at play.

Two little feet, too little time,

will be walking to school one day.

Kicking a rock, or skipping a rope,

wading a puddle or washed with soap.

Two little feet, one little child,

will soon go their own way.

But footprints in my mind recall,

they stood here yesterday.

Someday they’ll jump through puddles,

take a stroll or run a race.

Someday they’ll walk across the street,

or maybe walk in space.

Someday they’ll scale a mountain,

or join a ballet corps.

Someday they’ll walk a tightrope,

or explore the ocean floor.

Someday these feet will do some things,

that only heaven knows,

But for today they’re happy

just to wiggle all their toes!

hugs n’ blessings to all the little feet who make the biggest footprints in our hearts!
