One night Kevin had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the Tempster.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the Tempster.
He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.
This really bothered Kevin and he
questioned the Tempster about it:
"Tempster, 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 Tempster replied:
"My filmer, my precious friend,
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."
