Learning to let go...

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

This morning I came across my favorite poem on line and thought I would share it with everyone...It has helped me in many dark areas of my life...Like right now for instance...

One night I had a dream...

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life
This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would 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 in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.

I realize now that my brother and sister in law are only trying to help us and also to lessen the burden of debt we are under...but, accusing me of not being truthful with him about our yesterday's blog indicated...that just hurt me.

I used to be the kind of person that forgave easily as I did not want to cause a rift in the is causing me problems...and also many sleepless nights...I have not slept good in about two weeks.

Mom said to me yesterday...that she wanted to remove my brother as power of do we do that?....and also how do I get through this and still remain intact...sanity wise.

I have not been to church in many, many years.

    I love the poem, thank you for sharing. Re changing power of attorney -- is their a social worker that can give you and your mom that advice? Or call Legal Aid and ask if they can help. Who else does your mom want to use as her power of attorney? Because she may be unable to make decisions at times if she is very ill.

    That has always been my favorite poem. I am so sorry about your family issues. I know how hard that can be on your sanity.Maybe you should try going to church and see if that helps.
