-Footprints in the Sand-

-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 offootprints 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 troubled 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."

Living in Mexico there are a lot of things that I am not used to and will probably never get used to for that fact.  For example, I have never in my life been stared at, talked to, and whistled at more times in my entire life than I do in one day here.  It's just weird.  I try not to seem too happy about where I am going (as to not be targeted as a weakness ya know), and keep a straight face as much as I can.  Doing that though, just makes me laugh at myself, so people think that I am psychotic.  Whatever though right?

I also have a friend.  :)  Pretty sure his name is Daniel, but he was talking too fast for me to really know.  He is a mechanic, and his right hand/arm is broken.  Since twice a day I walk by his shop with another teacher at the school, he knew pretty quickly that we were Americans.  He is a happy fella of 40ish, and likes to make small talk.  Too bad I don't know what he is saying though.

I had my second Spanish class today, and it was a lot of fun.  My teacher was trying to say sheet, but said s*** instead...like 5 times.  Hilarious it was!

There was a huge rain that decided to come down and flood the roads.  On the walk home, I got splashed with water by a truck full of police men with HUGE guns.  It felt like they did it on purpose, but I hope that is just my mind telling me that.  Oh and the water smells....like fish when it rains. :/  So I pretty much was one wet, muddy, and stinky person walking home.  Back to the guns though...I never thought that I would see someone hold guns that big...it's scary to know that they need them here.  :/
