Reply to "Interview with God - a poem"

Dear Vinod,
Have not been in the best of forms and hence have had to cut down on the "Ammas", love and xxx. I find a lot of new faces and am glad the site is carrying on as well as ever - even though I post just once in a while!!! Big Grin

I liked the poem and decided to add one of my own. I am sure almost everyone has read this but no harm in going through it once again.


One night I had a dream--
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many times along the path of my life,there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life.

This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that 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 in times when I needed you most,you should leave me?"

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
