~*~ The Cross
The young man was at the end of his rope.
Seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in
"Lord, I can't go on," he said.
"I have too heavy a cross to bare."
The Lord replied,
"My son, if you can't bare it's weight,
just place your cross inside this room.
Then open another door and pick any cross you
The man was filled with relief.
"Thank you, Lord,"
he sighed, and did as he was told.
As he looked around the room he saw many different
some so large the tops were not visible.
Then he spotted a tiny cross leaning against
a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered.
And the Lord replied,
"My son, that's the cross you brought in."
