A photography obsessor who loves to play the piano and strum her guitar, an absolute beach-maniac, sunset lover, nuts about cats and arts, like traveling. ~She sees life as one great big joke, a dance that's walked a song that's spoke, she laugh so hard that she almost choke when she think about herself. ~You see she's just a human and While she knows herself as a creation of God, she's obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God's creation

~ Would love to share this beautiful poem with you (who ever reads it). Foot Prints on the Sand. A beautiful and meaningful poem. I'm not sure who is the writer, but I'm sure the writer is a good poem writer..~

Foot Prints on the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”

Snapshots of my Soul

Looking back to the many life’s lessons I had until I get to the point where I stop running, stop crying and stop lying to myself and start facing the reality of life. It takes me a while to close doors because I believe doors open for a reason, but sometimes we are so bent on keeping that door open, that we fail to see when God closes it and opens another.  I realized that I need to embrace the dawn of a new morning. It's never easy but I reflect, I accept and I learn…and it makes me stronger.
Looking ahead I realized I cannot change the past but I can always shape my future and that’s the beautiful thing about life. God does not promise days without rains and storms and the yes, the unexpected will occur, but I choose to trust in the plan He has for my life and believe that He will never leave me nor forsake me. The world is my playground and the best is yet to come. Tomorrow is not granted, but my attitude can be and that powerful realization…it  makes me stronger.

Looking within, I realized that life can be cruel in its harsh reality. I've learned and continue to learn some hard facts. Situations and circumstances have revealed my strengths and also my weaknesses. At the height of good fortune, a human can be vulnerable to misdirection and mistakes. In the rough times, I've learned more about myself than at any other time in my life. I realized life holds different shades of human nature. When the lightning strikes and the storms come, the rainbow reveals who your true friends really are. Roses have thorns, people change, and most friendships are fleeting.

I have learned to seek happiness alone, have some me time, love myself and through that I can truly love others.
