FOOTPRINTS AND OTHER INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES (© History & Heraldry 2002)
One night a man dreamed 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 in the sand. Then he noticed that at the lowest times in his life, there was only one set of footprints. "Lord, you said that if I followed you, you'd walk with me all the way. But during troubled times there is only one set of footprints."
The Lord replied, "My son, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
