From the Publisher:

One night I dreamed a dream. I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.

So opens one of the best-loved Christian poems of our day, a verse rich in meaning to millions of people. Thirty-five years ago, when an unknown poet, later discovered to be Margaret Fishback Powers, penned these words, little did she know the magnitude of their power and healing. Why has Footprints in the Sand endured while so many other poems have been forgotten? It's message of God's lovingkindness and watchful care hit a nerve with people who are hurting, lonely, or suffering in some way. Everyone has felt forsaken at one time or another in their lives. Footprints reminds us that to God, each of his children are precious beyond imagining, and that he who carried the world on his shoulders will carry his children too. This enduring poem has graced many books, plaques, greeting cards and a variety of other mediums. It has been cross-stitched onto samplers, and scrawled onto countless letters of encouragement. But the demand for the poem never dies down. Indeed, its eloquent expression of God's care is always fresh and appealing. The Footprints die-cut softcover book is an ideal gift of support, comfort, and hope. Illustrated with a sand-and-sea motif, this lovely book consists of the beloved poem, Scripture and other quoted material which further impart God's tender love for his children.
