ootprints," a poem that has spoken to millions of God's love, was written by Margaret Fishback Powers when she was a young woman fearful of the troubles that might lie ahead. She prayed for guidance, and the answer came to her in the form of the now-famous poem. Twenty years passed. The poem was lost when Margaret and her family moved from Toronto to Vancouver. Then, one day, the poem—and its message of faith—returned when Margaret needed them most. Her daughter, an accident victim, was fighting for her life in a Vancouver hospital. So was her husband, who had suffered a heart attack when he saw the girl injured. Trying to comfort Margaret's husband, a nurse read "Footprints." When she finished she said, "I don't know the author, it's anonymous." He replied softly, "If s my wife."
