Footprints in the Sand my favorite poem
thanks to maple bennie for help on posting

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."
