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 sand,
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 in the sand.  There was only one set of footprints.  I realized that this was 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 and talk with me all the way. But I’m aware that during 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 will never leave You never, ever, during your trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of Footprints it was then that I carried you.”
-Margaret F. Powers

I have always loved this poem it would just make my little spirit get all tingly inside and I love that feeling.  I think I have gained my strength from our Heavenly Father He loves me so much and during this trying time He is carrying me.  He has not forgotten about me.  He knows that my little heart broke after loosing my daughter and He has been here helping me get my strength to pick it up.
