This is one of my fav ones 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 of footprints 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 bothered 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."

mine favourite is Unending Love I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times... In life after life, in age after age, forever. My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs, That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms, In life after life, in age after age, forever. Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age old pain, It's ancient tale of being apart or together. As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge, Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time. You become an image of what is remembered forever. You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount. At the heart of time, love of one for another. We have played along side millions of lovers, Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting, the distressful tears of farewell, Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever. By: Rabindranath Tagore

1 Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom, 2 Lead Thou me on! 3 The night is dark, and I am far from home -- 4 Lead Thou me on! 5 Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see 6 The distant scene, -- one step enough for me. 7 I was not ever thus, nor pray'd that Thou 8 Should'st lead me on. 9 I loved to choose and see my path; but now 10 Lead Thou me on! 11 I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, 12 Pride ruled my will: remember not past years. 13 So long Thy power hath blest me, sure it still 14 Will lead me on, 15 O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till 16 The night is gone; 17 And with the morn those angel faces smile 18 Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile. - NEWMAN
