One night I had a dream.
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with God
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two pairs of footprints in
the sand one belonging to me and the other to God
When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at times along the path of life
there was only one set of footprints.
I noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times of my life. This really bothered
me and I questioned God about it. "God, you said
that once I decided to follow you, you would walk
With me all the way but I noticed that during the
Most troublesome times in my life there is only one
Set of footprints. I don't understand why in times
when I needed you most, you would leave me."
God replied. "My precious, precious child. I love
you and I would never, never leave you during your
times of trials and suffering. When you see only one
set of footprints it was then that I carried you."
