FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the colorful sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints and 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 believe in 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 abandon me."

The Lord said unto him, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and tribulation, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk
being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time
I've ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something
to think about.

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were
invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's
home. My friend,was nervous about the weekend.
The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway,
and cars costing more than her house.

The first day and evening went well, and she was
delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy
live. The husband's employer was quite generous
as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants.she
knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in
this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself
immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant
that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of her
and her husband.He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long,silent moment.

she wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was
nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that
someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts Still silent, t
he man reached down and picked up the penny.

He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he
had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this
man have for a single penny? ! Why would he even take the
time to stop and pick it up?

Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally,
she could stand it no longer. She casually mentioned that her
daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny
he had found had been of some value.

A smile crept across the man's face as he reached into his pocket
for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many
pennies before! What was the point of this?

"Look at it." He said. "Read what it says."
She read the words "United States of America"
"No, not that; read further."
"One cent?" "No, keep reading."
"In God we Trust?" "Yes!" "And?"
"And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a
coin. Whenever I find a coin I see that inscription. It is
written on every single United States coin! in, but we never
seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me
telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see
a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that
moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do
trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it
were gold. I think it is God's way of starting a conversation
with me. Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are
plentiful!

When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the
sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had
been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot
change. I read the words, "In God We Trust," and had to laugh.
Yes, God, I get the message.

It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of
pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful! And, God is patient
