Obituary


One night I had a dream.
I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed
scenes from my life.
In each scene, I noticed
two sets of footprints
in the sand, one belonged to me,
and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my
life flashed before me,
I looked back at the
footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many
times along the path of my life
there was only
one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened
at the worst times...

One night I had a dream.
I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed
scenes from my life.
In each scene, I noticed
two sets of footprints
in the sand, one belonged to me,
and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my
life flashed before me,
I looked back at the
footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many
times along the path of my life
there was only
one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened
at the worst times in my life.

This really bothered me and
I questioned the
LORD about it.
"LORD, you said that once
I decided to follow you, you would
walk with me all the way.
But I've noticed that
during times of trouble
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, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
When you see only
one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
