-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."

Part 2: You Know You are in Mexico When:

 You know you are in Mexico when:

43-  The cockroaches look like walking Twinkies...If only hostess didn't go out of business.
44-  You hear people say, "Tamale, tamale, tamale," on speakers riding their bicycles (with pots full of tamales in the front basket.)  Honestly, it just cracks me up.  :P
45-  Guys go, "Ch, ch, ch," at you all the time.  Do I look like a dog?
46-  Carpet doesn't exist.  It's either tile, or concrete.
47- Women carry like 3 basket full of tortillas around all day.  Some even have children cradled on the front...that is what you call hard labor.
48- You see mice running around outside of the school.  They are super small, and cute.  I could only imagine how annoying they are though. 
49-  The garbage trucks say, "Mama! Saca la basura!!"  Bahahaha!
50- There are AMAZING bread shops on every corner.  I am obsessed.
51-  The tacos put American one's to shame.  You don't know a taco til you've been to Mexico.
52-  Milk comes in a box, not a jug.
53- You trip on all the broken sidewalks, and almost break your face.
54-  You can take siestas on the grass outside, and get tan from the sun...in December.

Oh Mexico....I'm glad I got to know you.
