In loving memory of George Messerschmidt, who passed away March 5, 1984.
Footprints In The Sand
I dreamed that I had died. The Lord and I walked side by side; leaving two sets of footprints in the sand.
Ahead in the distance, I could see the pearly gate of heaven. I took one last glance behind me, wanting to remember all the footsteps I had taken through life.
Behind me, over the smooth and easy paths of my life’s journey, there were two sets of footprints in the sand. But where the road was steep and difficult to travel, there appeared only one set of footprints.
I asked the Lord this question, “Lord, I believed that you would walk by my side through my life, during easy times and difficult times. But during the hard journey, I see only one set of footprints. Why?” The Lord answered, “My child, I was with you all through your travels, but along the most difficult paths, I carried you.”
