I do love this poem. I have gone through tough times before. About 15 years ago I was in an abusive relationship. I have a hard time letting go of those old memories. It is a wonder I wasn't killed. I look back and know even though I was not praying and lost faith, Jesus didn't lose faith in me. He carried me, and I would be dead if he wasn't there one particular night.
I would love to hear stories about when Jesus carried you. I didn't know he was there until years later. Did you know while you were going through your problems Jesus was there?

I dreamed that I was walking down the beach with the Goddess. And I looked back and saw footprints in the sand.
But sometimes there were two pairs of footprints, and sometimes there was only one. And the times when there was only one pair of footprints, those were my times of greatest trouble.
So I asked the Goddess, "Why, in my greatest need, did you abandon me?"
She replied, "I never left you. Those were the times when we both hopped on one foot." And lo, I was really embarrassed for bothering Her with such a stupid question.
