A dear friend

I have very few I can call close friends. But, I know we will always be there for each other. Like in the poem, we may sometime feel alone, and jey our friends might be close by, helping. I'm so grateful for my close friends, one of them is coming to day and staying a few days. We're going to do a lot of stamping and quilling. It's going to be so fun.
My wish is, that we'll always be there for each other, helping others when they fall. Also, and I know this is difficult, let others help us when we need it. It will strenghten the friendship between us and others. Give it a try! What do you have to loose?


One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."
