I love this story =)

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sands,
one belonging to me, and one to my Lord.

When the last scene of my life shot before me
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
There was only one set of footprints.
I realized that this was at the lowest
and saddest times of my life.
This always bothered me and I questioned
the Lord about my dilemma.

"Lord, you told me when I decided to follow You,
You would walk with me all the way.
But I'm aware at the most troublesome
times of my life there is only one set of footprints.
I just don't understand why, when I needed
You the most, You leave me."

He whispered, "My precious child,
I love you and I will never leave you
never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints
it was when I carried you."

- Margaret Fishback 1964 -
