:gflower: Just a little reminder for all of us. :)

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,

“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”

The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

Mary Stevenson, 1936

Leona Lewis sings a song where this poem was adapted into lyrics. My go-to song when I need it. Thanks for sharing!

Last week we receive the results from the biopsy which Philip had, sadly came back malignant. :cry:
Philip will be going in to hospital tomorrow for BCC procedure.
We trust in the Lord for complete and total healing. We know He is in control of every aspect of our lives and rest with this knowledge in our hearts.
Prayer for Philip :k
Maker of heaven and earth,
Thank You for the role of doctors, nurses, and surgeons. Thank You for the blessing of knowledge and understanding, for the breakthroughs in medicine and all the specialist treatments.
Lord, may You oversee each area of this surgery, every detail and protect Philip and keep him, as he looks forward to recovery and the future.
We dwell in Your love, hope and strength always. Amen
