I absolutely love Shelly’s imagery of God’s presence, His thoughts, and His pursuit of our hearts even when life hurts. I’m reminded of the beloved poem “Footprints in the Sand” that has resonated with folks for years.  Shelly’s story elaborates on that idea by giving us a glimpse of how God loves and carries us no matter what our circumstances, and even if we have yet to recognize that He has been there all along.
