Dear Jill...Never forget that you do not walk this long and difficult road alone.

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?â€The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.â€

Our dear Cruise Addict friend Jill......Duncan, Lyn, you and all your family continue to be in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers.

Beryl, one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES. Thanks for that reminder....here is another little saying that I heard MANY years ago that I loved so much that I cross stitched it and have it framed: "Reach up as far as you can, and God will reach down the rest of the way."
