Footprints In The Sand

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."


Hello and thank you for visiting my site. I have made this site in honor of my father who passed away on May 17, 2000. Here you can see what kind of man my father was. Also you can see pictures of him and his family. I hope you will enjoy this site for it was an honor for me to make.

It's hard to believe,that another Christmas will past without my father here.  I know that it's hard for anyone to lose a love one. I got fooled I thought it could never happen to me and I would have my mom and dad for the rest of my life. Ths is not true. Now the thing that gets me worried is that I know it can happen to me and I don't want to lose anyone else. I know what you are thinking I'm feeling sorry for myself maybe I'am and this will all go away someday. But as for now  it's here and I miss my daddy so much.The year went on without my dad. My daughter had her 1st birthday. Matthew started walking. Dj WOW, became such a big boy. 9-11 stopped the world, People died, babies were born,war was declared, prices went up, bussinesses closed, but one thing never changed the world kept truning and we all went on for another day.
So I guess what I'm saying is things could be worst just be good to each other and remember the love ones we lost (lke my son always tells me)well always be in our HEARTS.
