“In sleep, enchant my dreams.”
Then along the sea, I retraced my life.
Footprints in the sand marked my journey-
From tiny, wobbling toes to sure, straight strides.
During times of confusion, my steps strayed from a steady course.
Solitary footprints in the sand deepened during my sorrows.
I called out to God.
“Why didn’t you walk with me when I needed you most?”
Once I asked, lightening illuminated disillusionment.
In that light, I again saw those footprints, deep and firm.
Beach winds fiercened, and thunderbolts roared
To command my answer.
“What Power gave you strength to carry on?”
