Footprints in the Sand by Thomas Kinkade
Inspiration for the heart.
For many years I have given this poem "Footprints in the Sand" to people who have been in need of comfort during difficult times. It seemed to convey a message that I could not describe, yet have felt all too often.
Once my sister-in-law had shared with me how she didn't realize until much later, that when she was experiencing the most challenging periods in her life, that God Himself was always there. He was walking by her when she felt alone, and yes, carrying her when she could not stand.
Footprints in the Sand is a description of what life brings, and it inspires the heart. Through prayer we need to remember that God is always there and will help us get through those trying situations. Let this message speak to you.
As you draw on this, my hope is that you will share the message leaving your own footprints giving hope to those who need inspiring. (This photo and poem available at Amazon) .
