One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,

other times there was one only.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life,

when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,

"You promised me Lord, that if I followed you,

you would walk with me always.

But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life

there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,

have you not been there for me?

"The Lord replied,

"The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,

my child, is when I carried you."

  1. I always liked this poem, and sometimes when things have gotten difficult for me, I recall the last line in my head. Very nice adaptation of the hand of God/hand of man, there, too. It really fits well with the theme.

    Tis a good picture and suits the poem. Keep it there.
