FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”
Mary Stevenson, 1936

- If you have any questions about my faith and especially Catholicism…please just ask. I don’t publish most of my asks…so don’t worry about secrecy. but if it’s a big deal or you’re not sure, here’s my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am an architecture student at Cal Poly Pomona.
I make art sometimes. I think I’m alright. I’ll post that every once in a while.
Music is so important to me. Please submit anything if you want me to do some visuals for it.
For everyone that read this far. You’re awesome. Here’s why I put the poem Footprints in the Sand:
I really haven’t been serious about my faith until recently. I know that there have been two sets of footprints and now I’m putting myself into God’s hands. There’s only one sets of footprints right now. It has brought nothing but joy to me.
