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 belonging 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 times 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 son, 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."

Carolyn Carty, 1963

When this is over, may we never again take for granted

A handshake with a stranger

Full shelves at the store

Conversations with neighbors

A crowded theater

Friday night out

The taste of communion

A routine checkup

The school rush each morning

Coffee with a friend

The stadium roaring

Each deep breath

A boring Tuesday

Life itself.

When this ends

that way — better

for each other

Because of the worst “

Great inspiration Usk

I must say I'm /we here in Western Australia, are living a surreal life at the moment ,

Life.here is going on much as usual,

We see the virus ravage the rest of the world while we remain free of it,we can travel to other states Barr NSW....at the moment 

We are so lucky ,great leadership,great location.....wise population....(I think because we all have family overseas, well most)

Take care all ,stay safe.....😷😉

First click on the "edit post" option on the top right of the post.

A large dialog box will open.

Then highlight all the text you want to show up in the box.

Along the top of the box are a couple of lines of symbols.  Click on this one  it is the sixth along:  A💧  

 Click on "Update post".
