The Impression You Leave

Put your hand in a bucket of water
Pull it out, what do you have?
You find more of an impression
Left on your hand than in the water

Walking barefoot in the sand
You leave behind a set of footprints
The footprints will soon be gone
But the sand will still be there

The wind blows and it howls
It will often cause destruction
Strong enough, it can knock you down
But you can do nothing to stop it

God created the forces of nature
He also formed man from dust
Before long we return to dust
As nature still rolls on.....

Humbling isn't it? Makes all of our huge problems seem not so huge after all.
