Today I'm going to recite a simple but powerful poem that has inspired millions of people during their time of despair since the late 1940’s! It’s called “Footprints in the Sand”. Mary Stevenson wrote it at a very young age in 1936. She was born in 1922. She lost her mother at age six. The burden of raising 8 children fell on her father. Most of her childhood was spent during one of America’s toughest and most trying times, The Great Depression! She was inspired to write “Footprints in the Sand” after many unpleasant things affected her young life. She shared handwritten copies of it with those whom she felt were in need of some words of comfort to gain strength during those difficult times. You could follow the link I’ve given to learn more about her! Thank You. Happy Listening!
Along the beach with the Lord.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Other times there were one set of footprints.
During the low periods of my life when I was
I could see only one set of footprints.
You would walk with me always.
One set of prints in the sand.
You have not been there for me?"
Is when I carried you."
