One night I had a dream .I was walking along
the beach with the lord, and across the skies
flashed scenes from my life. In each scene I
noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.
One was mine, and one was the lord's.

When the last scene of my life appeared
before me, I looked back at the footprints
in the sand, and to my surprise I noticed
that many times along the path of my life
there was only one set of footprints, and
I noticed that it was at the lowest and
saddest times in my life.

I asked the lord about it."Lord you said that
once I decided to follow you, you would walk
with me all the way. But I notice that during
the most troublesome times in my life,there
is only one set of footprints. I don't
understand why you left my side when I
needed you most".

The lord replied, "my precious child, I love
you and would never leave you. During your
times of trial and suffering, where you see
only one set of footprints, I was carrying you."
