Anne Lamott’s Face Book post:
You know the famous Footprints image, where, in heaven, a person sees their footprints in the sand? My pastor mentions the times where there are two sets of prints, where we’re walking with a power of Something–love energy, let’s say– and the times where there is just one set, where that love energy, carries us when things are too hard. But Veronica also mentions a third pattern, of crazy squiggly bouncy lines. The person, looking them over with God asks, “Oh, and what were those times? And God says, “Those were when we danced.”
Anne Lamott’s Autobiographical books are my number one favorite reading. Louise Penny’s Canadian Mysteries are my second favorite reading.
Both of these Authors’ bottom line is :It’s all right to be a weak fallible human being: we are loved. Period. No if’s and’s or but’s.
