Revert Heaven - Poem by Sarah Jane Black

We were in the stars. On the edge of a sandbar, more close to the real world than any girls our age could have been. We prayed at the beauty; the beauty that so many had talked about, but had forgotten in the world that we knew as home.
They talk about footprints. How there was one set, because a man, who had suffered so much grief was being carried by Jesus. Out on that island where we stood on a ground of broken shells, moonbeams, and flecks of gold, God was showing us a small piece of heaven on earth. I discovered that there were footprints all over the world, all of us being carried by the same great God.
I wondered how one man could stagger underneath all of that weight, but was reminded that He was no man. To bring us all back together after years of unrest was a testimony of our story tattoed across the sand.
Divine intervention had made our set of three footprints not walk along the beach- no. Those footprints were scattered around the sand like the sun was scattered on our skin.
We weren't walking.
We were dancing; our prints circling each other in unison.
God lives.
