Footprints

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 precious, 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".

Eleanor Roosevelt wrote:
Many people will
walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leave footprints
in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use
your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays
you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your
fault
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small
minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a
friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young
people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of
art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to
make them all yourself.
