-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."

Just a bunch of junk

Today has been a day where I don't really care about what punctuation I use or how I spell or all the other things that are on my mind when I write a blog.  I simply just want to write and tell what has been happenin these past few weeks. ....welll this past week seemed to go on forever considering it was mid semester visits so i was a little nervous, but really i had nothing to worry about.  right now on my mind I have amanda siler, and how she followed a mom and young girl to thier baptist church this morning.  I am chuckling to mycelf as I am typing this.  I think that it was funny that she was caught in the middle of alll those mexican baptists fainting and hollering and what not.  If only I could have recorded it.

i have one more week at Discovery, and I am full of mixed emotions from those children.  I love to love them, but it is difficult when they are climbing, shoving, shooting poking slapping biting sucking jumping mocking and falling everywhere.  they are adorable though!  i am going to give them cookies and popcorn on friday...it's weird that i am already thinking of friday.  friday. Friday, friday...gotta get down on friday....lookin forward to the weekend...partying, partying YEAH....blah blah blahhhhhhhhhlksjfoihfdjfldjsflndslkjdfoij

today the teachers and i all were early for church...considering it started two hours late.  for stake conference that is.  don't worry they aren't always this late, but actually mexicans in general are very late.  kinda sucks not gonna lie, but there isn't much ya can do about that one.  i am excited that halloween is coming up.  its just gonna be an awesome celebration.  i am broke.  i have found 2 bugs in my room...they weren't scary ones but annoying nonetheless.  There is  a spider in the corner of my classroom at school, and i am very tempted to tell the kids so that i can see their faces, as they all stampede to the door yelling and screaming, only God knows what at the top of their lungs.  that would make me the best teacher in the world :)

Oh lets see, i am thinkin of going to thailand next fall.  we will see where that idea takes me.  i was asked to be a head teacher at byui in the winter and i am excited to get to be in the preschool again.  i will also get paid which is even super cooooooowaeeeeee!   sometimes i hate spanish....but other times i fall in love with it.  i don't really understand our relationship at the moment.  my mom booked my plane ticket to go back to college january 4th....flying into salt lake, that should be exciting. 

my host dad sang john lennon to me last night..super funny!  i also gave him a book of mormon in spanish while he made me "breakfast" at 12:30 this afternoon.  i really really really really love love love love love this family.  we are planning a football day when tennessee and miami play...considering they are our favs.  who will be the winner??  only time will tell that one but seriously tn's got in it the bag ;)

are you bored yet cause i'm fallin asleep over here!  maybe if i changed the font to ALL CAPS THEN THAT WILL AWAKEN MY MIND TO FINISH THIS POST.  I WENT ON VACATION THIS LAST WEEKEND AND THAT WAS FUN...(that wasn't working)...but i ate crickets.  not on the top of my most delicious list.  I had a fun time though, puebla is a beautiful place.

my birthday is in less than a month, and i am super excited for dia del muerto!  i really love it here, and will be so sad to leave everything behind.  i can only live for the moment, and make the best out of it.  making memories in mexico is one of the best decisions i have made thus far.
