One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach
with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes
from his life. For each scene he noticed there
was two sets of footprints in the sand.  He
noticed that many times along the path of his
life there was only one set of footprints. He also
noticed that it happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he asked the Lord
about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to
follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But
I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times of my life, there is only one set
of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed
you most, you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you. During
your times of trial and suffering, when you saw
only one set of footprints, it was then
that I carried you."
