After reading reading I painted this...

I see the cross, and he shadow of His body, and footprints in the sand. The great picture reminds me of this story:
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets, other times there was only one.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could only see one set of prints.
So I said to the Lord:
"You promised me Lord that if I followed you, You would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of prints in the sand. Why, dear Lord, when you were needed the most, have you not been there for me?"
The Lord replied:
"Ah, but the years when you have only seen one pair of footprints, my son - that's when I was carrying you."
