 Language of Enchantment



In rodeo and cowboy circles
This one saying goes around...
"Cowboy Up" which simply means
Pick your rear off of the ground.

Free Clipart

Means replace can't with a can-do...
Dust off and jump back on!
Don't just lay there bleeding
Until your get up's got up and gone!

Free Clipart

Means shifting to an attitude
Of total confidence.
For achievement to be realized
A Cowboy Up makes sense.

Free Clipart

While a bucking bronc or Brahma bull
May not have done us in.
When we're face down in the devil's dirt,
We've most likely lassoed sin.

Free Clipart

Sin's just as bad as that raging bull...
In fact, it's so much worse!
It's a killer and destroyer
With a ticket to Hell purse!

Free Clipart

There are no winners in the wild
Arenas of the damned.
Few find the trail that leads to truth
But the one to error's jammed!

Free Clipart

So when we find ourselves outside
Of God's OK Corral...
We need to shake that sin right off
And quickly ride back to our Pal.

Free Clipart

He has kept the campfire going,
Waiting to refill each cup.
So saddle up to see the Savior
Because it's time to Cowboy Up!

Prayerfully Presented,
