Bento No. 59 - Footprints in the Sand

I want to share a poem that i love very much :
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.
One belonging to him and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life 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 of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it.
"LORD, You said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life, there is only one set of footprint. I don't understand why when I needed You most You would leave me."
The Lord replied, " My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of foot prints, it was then that I carried you."
I want to share this poem to all and to someone that I care and love very much who is now at the lowest, saddest and most troublesome times of life.
Don't give up hope, at the end of the footprints, you will find some Irish Clovers for Good Luck and a rainbow for a good sign and new beginning.
