An Iraqi woman struggling with her faith

About: neurotic Iraqi wife: Footprints in the Sand....

One night a man had a dream. He dreamt he was walking with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes of his life. For each scene,he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;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 in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it had happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered the man and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow 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 leave me." The Lord replied,"My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering,when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that..... I carried you.
... and so i choose her picture as the picture of the day ... i am not sure why, but this keeps making me cry
