This poem is dedicated to Leslie and DL who are undergoing a trying time.
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:
He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.
He noticed that it also happened at the very lowest and saddest
times in his life
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about about it.
"LORD", you said that once I decide 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 most, you would leave me".
The LORD, replied, "My precious, precious, child, I love you, and would never leave you. During your times times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints,it was then that I carried you".
This is one of my favourite writings, dear Leslie and Lorne.
I hope you both derive some comfort and strength from it.
