FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
A lovely walk on a beautiful beach
while we were away,
a very close friend of ours passed away suddenly.
So this is dedicated to you RUSS.
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 were only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the lord about it.
Lord you said 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 don't understand why
when i needed you most you would leave me.
The lord replied. 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 footprints.
It was then that i carried you.
R.I.P Russ we will never forget you xxxx
