“God, Where are you? Mary Pleaded”….

FootPrints in the Sand

The inspiring Life behind the immortal poem

by Gail Giorgio

subtitled in future additions differently:

{Footprints in the Sand – The Life Story of Mary Stevenson, Author of the Immortal Poem}

Many will have seen this poem

it shows up on bookmarks

sympathy cards

church bulletins


websites of inspiration

but did  you ever stop

just for a moment

to consider


who, why

of the author

this book

brings to you the life struggles and triumphs that

lead the author Mary  Stevenson

to write the poem.


just a thought

if Mary can look back over her life

(a life of ‘sorrow’, ‘loss’, ‘desperation’)

and still see the footprints  in the sand

what are we harboring in our hearts

that if we looked back

over the hurts in our lives

if we opened our eyes

and examined our lives

I promise

we too

would see

the Footprints in the Sand
