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 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.”

Survivors include her parents, Phuong Nguyen & An Hoang, brother Chung Nguyen and sister Tuyet Nguyen – living in Kansas City, MO, brother Thanh Nguyen, and sister-in-law Tiffany Hoang, and nephew Andrew Nguyen  – living in San Jose, CA.
