  Mary Stevenson wrote the poem FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the colorful sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints and noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. " Lord, you said that once I decided to believe in you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would abandon me."

The Lord said unto him, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and tribulation, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Mary (Stevenson) Zangare's Footprints through time!

Mary was born in Chester, Pennsylvania on November 8, 1922.

It was during the Depression that her mother died. Her father had to work

away from home leaving the six children at home...sometimes they ran out of food.

At a young age Mary learned to dance, on street corners. 

Her earnings helped buy food.

In the winter of 1936, 14 year-old Mary Stevenson wrote the poem FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND saying that God gave her the words while she just pushed the pencil. From that day on, Mary gave hand-written copies of her poem to friends, relatives and strangers. She kept her 1939 copy.
