We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened.” Mark Twain

When I can see skies like this I wake up saying “Good morning, God!” rather than “Good God, it’s morning!”

Footprints
by Margaret Powers

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scene from his life. He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him he noticed that many times there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it was at the very lowest times in his life.

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 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."

Hahaha. I love it! Waking up to Good Morning, God rather than Good God, it's morning! I've had that struggle once or twice....

Your post is full of encouragement. The Footprints poem was given to me when my baby son was dying in the hospital 20 years ago. It meant so much to me then, and it still means to me.

Greetings from Australia.
Your header photo is absolutely stunning, and the words are beautiful because they are so true. I think we sometimes forget this and take things for granted.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words. The clouds in your photos are lovely, especially the last two.
Cheers.
