One night a man had a dream. He dreamt 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 on the sand -- one belonging
to him and the other to the Lord. When the last scene had flashed
before him, he looked back at the footprints and he noticed only one
set. He also noticed that this happened during the lowest and saddest
times of his life. This bothered him and he questioned the Lord. "Lord,
you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk all the
way with me, but I noticed that during the most troublesome times
of my life there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand
why, when I needed you most, you deserted me."
The Lord replied, "My precious child, I love you and would never leave
you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one
set of footprints, those were the times when I carried you in my arms."
