"When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you." -From the poem "Footprints," by Margaret Fishback Powers
October 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the writing of "Footprints." What was inspired by a walk on a beach in 1964 has become a treasured poem that has brought comfort and courage to countless people all over the world.
To mark this outstanding milestone, Margaret Fishback Powers gives us a stunning collection of stories, scripture and memories that reflect the themes of her poem. In honour of the 50th anniversary, Margaret has gathered more than fifty stories-never before published-that celebrate compassion and kindness, courage and strength, hope and faith, and gratitude and friendship. As she explains in the introduction to her book, "Some of these stories are about life-changing experiences, while others tell of small, everyday kindnesses that make a lasting impression. Some stories will bring a tear to the eye; others a smile to the face."
The Footprints Treasury is a beautiful collection of writing and reflections that remind us why this poem continues to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds.
