"Originally when the idea for this painting came to me I saw it in my mind’s eye as Jesus helping a couple, perhaps a man and wife across this stream which symbolizes the tumultuous and difficult times in our lives. As I began to sketch out my idea it was soon apparent that the man and woman didn’t appear helpless enough in comparison with the figures of Jesus. I then decided to use young children instead of adults to represent our comparative abilities. During our own trials we may sometimes relate to the words of Mary Stevenson in her poem, “Footprints in the Sand.” We may see only one set of footprints during those painful miles on our journey and conclude that the Lord must have left our side. It is then that he replies, “The times when you have seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you.”
