THE STEPS


One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking on the beach with God.
At the sky, scenes from his whole life were passing and for every scene there were two pairs of footprints in the sand. One belonged to him and the other to God.

When the last scene of his life flashed in front of him, he looked back to the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times on the road of his life there was only one pair of footprints and those times were when he had the saddest moments in his life.
This really bothered him and he asked God :

''God, when I decided to follow you, you said you would walk with me always but I noticed that at the most difficult moments of my life, there is only one pair footprints...?
I do not understand! Why when i needed you the most, you left me alone??

And God replied, "My beloved child, I would never leave you alone!
In those painful moments of your life, you see only one pair of footprints because i was hugging you and holding you in my arms.''
