Imagine a rat.
A cute, furry, pet rat.
Now, that rat is picked up.
It sits for a minute...
But that rat will eventually want out.
The rat squirms
the rat wiggles
the rat tries to bite
but the hand holds it there still.
Unable to move, it gives up.
Then, the other hand raises to pet the rat.
the rat is happy.
The rat is no longer scared.
the rat feels at home.
the rat couldn't be more at peace.

Now, who is that rat?
...that rat is you.
...that rat is me.

Who's hands are holding the rodent?
...easy.
...those hands are God's.
--Christianity isn't always going to be easy. But you will find, even through the hard times, after the storm passes, you feel safe, because you are in God's hands.

I'm not really into poetry, but this is pretty good.

(Rats are cute, smart rodents! It really does make me wonder why some people are afraid of them or think they are ugly and such... So misunderstood.)

Np! :)

That was the whole reason my dad wouldn't let me have on as a kid. He thought they were gross.

Almost like pit bulls, but he LOVES those. XD

Awww, I never got one for a pet either. My parents were both skeptical too. (That, and they didn't want any smells inside the house, lol).

LOL! Funny, considering that dogs also lick their behinds. :XD: And then they try to lick someone's face...!

Yeah, that may have had something to do with it.

Ha, yeah.
