God and I

I loved this piece of writing whenever I read it written on coffee mugs or
posters.Thanks to Google that now I know who has written it.



I dreamed I was walking along the beach with God, and across the sky
flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand. One belonging to God, and the other to me.

When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I look back at the
footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of
my life, there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that
it happened at the very lowest and saddest time in my life. This
really bothered me and I questioned God about it.

God, 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 in my life there is only one set of footprints.
I do not understand why, in times when I needed You most,
You should leave me alone.

Then GOD replied

My precious child,
I love you and would never, never leave you wondering during your
time of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of
footprints in the sand, it was then that I carried you.

Nice to know that She is the author of this beautiful piece of writing. I still remember this I received as a forward in my initial day of Internet. And I have kept it in my archive. There are many more such forwards and they all are as Author Unknown

Thanks Vandy. And nice to see the update. At least you are doing once a while.

And nice picture and goes with this story. :)
