Skinned Knees

Skinned Knees


I fell out-front coming up the steps,
The sidewalk is cement.
I hit it hard, got to my feet
And in the house I went.

A little shaken, my knee throbbing,
I sat down to rest for a minute.
My knee was skinned, raw and bleeding,
This day, what a way to begin it.

It made me think of Someone else
Who also skinned His knees.
While carrying His cross to Calvary
He was beaten and He was teased.

The burden of the cross so heavy,
To the ground He fell.
He skinned His knees but kept on going
For God knew all was well.

God sent His Son to live on earth
To become a common man.
His death and resurrection
Were all part of God's great plan.

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
