.:Got this from e-mail, a friend of mine sent this on my Inbox:.
.:A short story to Ponder:.

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and
said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly.
Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know
what I was thinking. I want a divorce.. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly,

Footprints in the Sand

I just want to share this wonderful poem
-that always does..
-gives me hope in every challenges and trials
-I face on my Journey.

May it also inspire you as you travel your way.
God Bless!

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 belonged 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 time in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it.
"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 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 trials and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
