footprints

i did this scrap based on this beautiful poem, took pictures of their feet (while ellisa was sleeping, erika was happy to cooperate) i am sure most of you have read this poem before...

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 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."

etcetera mommy ask how i make foot or hand prints of my lil' girls, very simple la...use water colour only, make sure buy non-toxic ones!! which the manufacturer claims so and prints it boldly on the box. my collection of their prints can make into a book soon...whenever i do the prints i will write their name and date it, so i can see how much their feet and hands have grown over the months. still very difficult to do handprints for ellisa...footprints also difficult if she doe wan! very messy too.
