Life unfolds in divine order

Easter is one of the biggest and most magical Christian holidays which I always associate with traditions, rituals and spending time with your closest people.

It’s Ortodox Easter today, so as I every year I color eggs and prepare a special Easter bread that I’m going to share with my friends. For me such holidays are really about sharing and caring, and showing appreciation to the people who are there for you.

Something even bigger that Easter represents to me is to have faith that life unfolds in divine order and we are being taken care of.  

A beautiful story that depicts this and that I want to share with you today is called ” Footsteps in the sand”: 

One night I dreamed a dream.

As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.

Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,

One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,

especially at the very lowest and saddest times,

there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. 
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,

You’d walk with me all the way.

But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,

there was only one set of footprints.

I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints,

It was then that I carried you.”
Happy Easter!
