MINI DEVOTIONAL/THOUGHT
Footsteps in the Sand, written by Mary Stevenson
*
Main Thought: “He is with you, every step of the way.”
____________________
*
One night I had a dream--
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.

*
*
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would 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 in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me."
*
Prince of Peace, by Liz Lemon Swindle 
*
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
"When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

Sand Cast Plaster Footprints
Capturing footprints doesn't have to be reserved for babies and toddlers.
A tub of sand, plaster of Paris, water, a stick (to stir), and I'm sure a few giggles.
After a 30 minute wait, the girls would have a wonderful personal reminder of His love.

Footprint Art
This would be a fun project for the girls.
Great for display.
Have them each create a footprint, maybe with those things they have been blessed with.

Footprint Pendant
These were crafted in fine silver.
Why couldn't the girls create a miniature footprint
in salt dough and spray paint them silver?

Candle Art
I would add miniature seashells in place of the flowers and add a sandy base.
You could emphasize that the candle represents the light of Christ in their lives.
