Lisa's other favorite poem was Footprints in the Sand, "Lord, You said that once I decided to follow you, we would walk side by side through life. But when I needed you most, I saw only one set of footprints in the sand. The Lord replied, "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."
