That Pair Of Footprints…..

I was out of the blogosphere for a week now. There was a lot of things going on in my life. Surprises, unexpected things, disappointments, sad news etc all in one week. It was too much to take. It was a difficult time altogether.

I might as well stay away for some more time. Who knows, if something to blog about happen I will be back. May be in a week or a month.

Let me leave you guys with a story.

A young lad was very god fearing. His life was going on great, he was happy. Once while he was walking on the beach, he found two pairs of footprints on the sand.

That’s weird he thought. Then the voice from heaven spoke. “One set is yours, the other is mine. I am with you all the time”

He felt good and was happy that God was with him all the way.

That was when tragedy struck and he was sad. He walked through the same beach in search of the heavenly father who promised that he would be always with him. He turned around and was heart broken to see just one set of footprint.

He started blaming God. “He promised… he was with me when I was happy. Where is he now.???”

I will be you all the time” He mocked.

The voice from heaven spoke “What are you talking about?”

You said you would be with me and I can find only one set of footprint”

During your happiness times, I walked beside you……………….. now that you are going through a sad phase………………I was carrying you all the way………….That set of foot print is mine”
