One night I dreamed I was swimming in the ocean with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the ocean’s surface.

In each scene I noticed finprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of finprints.

Other times there were one set of finprints.

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 finprints.

So I said to the Lord, “You promised me, Lord,

That if I followed you, you would swim with me always.

But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life

There have only been one set of prints in the sand.

Why, When I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,

“The times when you have seen only one set of finprints

Is when I carried you.”
