Damn...sorry about that
I'll kill you! Lol, no I joke really, I respect your opinion
I'd like to point out that he's dead now and you're disrespecting the dead lol.
Well, Dave Gemmel likes to spit out the pulp for male (inwardly violent but socially restrained) masses, good on him for including such a gem.
"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 was one only.
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 has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”
I read this in one of David Gemmel's books recently! While I disagree with you on a theological level, it is a cool story
There was also the one about what paradise was..
