Footprints in the Sand
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.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 LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, 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 LORD replied: "My son, my precious child, 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."
Welcome to the Footprints Foundation!
Thank you for visiting our web-site. As we continue to grow, our vision hasn't changed. The Footprints Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged youth in the greater Kansas City area by providing funding for athletic and educational equipment as well as environments for positive social growth.
With the blessing of the Kansas City Royals (President Dan Glass, Senior Vice President Mark Gorris), Dick's Sporting Goods and their wonderful Community Marketing Coordinator, Stacy Alderson, Gloves for Kids became a reality on May 24, 2001 at Dick's Sporting Goods in Olathe, KS. With Royals players and coaches signing autographs to raise money for the effort, Gloves for Kids initially raised enough money to buy over 800 gloves for the Kansas City RBI Program.
