Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noriced two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and one to my Lord. After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life especially at the very lowest and saddest time, there was only one set of footprint. This really troubled me so I asked the Lord about it. Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, you'd walk wi me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of life there was only one set of footprint. I don't understand why, when I needed you the most you would leave me. He whispered, My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during you trails and sufferings. When you saw only one set of footprints it was then that I carried you. Love you your daughter Crystal
