Footprints

Footprints

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with God.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to God.

When the last scene in his life has flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned God,

“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you the most you would leave me”

God replied

“My son, My precious child, I love you, and I would never leave you. During the times of your trials and sufferings, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I CARRIED YOUAuthor Unknown

and one more to think about !!!

Think of me as I start my journey to a better place,

Talk to me as you always have.

Make a smile and keep a smile on your face, for me.

When you are in my garden, watch the flowers grow and think of me.

How do you go on without my presence, you ask?

Be a family and take care of each other.

Together with your strength and love you can get through anything.

Trust in God to take care of me, I am safe and at peace.

Trust in God to take care of you and your loved ones.

There is no right or wrong way to deal with the death of a loved one.

Everyone is the same in God’s eyes, only now I am PERFECT.

I HAVE MY WINGS
