The existance of Dog

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."

Which was reassuring, but still didn't explain why the footprints were those of a gigantic hound.


GAI


meaning: lament, deplore

憤慨 == fungai == (noun) indignation, resentment
感慨 == kangai == (noun) strong feelings, deep emotion


Left radical is one of the radical forms of 'heart/feelings'. The right radical is 'already' (既), which acts phonetically to express 'anger/detestation'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Already have feelings of lament.'
