ne 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 belonged 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 the most, You would leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints,
It was then I carried you."

times with Pat Wesley at the McKendree West
By Laura Posey
wo young lovers, walking on the sand,
Gazing at each other, talking hand in hand,
The prints they leave behind them,
Marking memories of the past,
The long beach laid before them,
Hoping love will last,
The ocean captures the footprints,
And erases them from the shore,
Taking with it remembrances,
And leaving them with more.
Many years have passed,
Time flies when you're having fun,
And before you know it innocence fades,
And the teen years are done,
Now she's back on the beach,
Except she is alone,
Watching and waiting,
For the love that hadn't grown,
She walks along the ocean,
Two footprints, not four,
Wondering where the laughter went,
Why he didn't love her more,
Then she stops to sit,
And draws his name in the sand,
A celestial stranger comes along,
And reaches out a hand,
Hesitantly she takes it,
And he listens to her cries,
He's been there before,
He's heard many lies,
They decide to walk,
And she follows, not knowing why.
Love will always be reborn again,
Even if it may die,
She is more cautious than before,
And as she looks back at the footprints,
She smiles seeing not two, but four,
This time will be different,
Her heart trying to say,
Something magical happened,
She felt it the first day,
Something clicked when they touched,
A jolt from inside,
She knew he'd be there always,
If she had something to confide.
Now here it is twenty years later,
And his love for her,
Is now even greater,
He looks at her like the first time they met,
And despite all the years gone by,
They can never forget,
Those four special footprints,
That are never washed away.
They'll stay forever on her heart.
Until their dying day.

a million times or more.
Of how when only one set shows
upon the sandy shore.
It is the Lord carrying us
and taking on our load.
And His are the only set
of footprints that showed.
Does He have favorites, OH NO,
please tell me that's not so!
By why does life seem easier
for some people that I know?
And sometimes I just scream out loud
although it seems in vain,
But often it gets harder each day
to deal with all this pain.
But what if when we look
there are no footprints to be found?
All we see is plain and simple
sand upon the ground.
No imprints showing that our Lord
is carrying us through life.
Helping us when we feel
we cannot handle all the strife.
And then it dawned on me as I realize
how simple could it be.
I wonder why I was so blind
that I truly did not see.
It must have been a lightning bolt
that one day gave me light,
Cause out of the clear blue sky,
I finally regained my sight.
Where is my Lord now that I've fallen
and can't seem to get back up?
So tired and lonely trying to deal
with what seems an overflowing cup.
Where are those footprints in the sand
to tell me He's right there?
Helping me with problems and
showing that He really does care.
I saw a fluffy white cloud
shaped like an Angel dear.
That helped me to understand
and see things oh so clear,
That when I saw no footprints
and so often wondered why,
My Lord carried me on Angel wings,
when He decided to fly.

Do you find yourself watching actors and actresses on
television or in movies and thinking, "I can do that"? If
so, then Alpha Psi Omega is for you. The purpose is to unite
people who are interested in drama. Drama may include stage
productions, backstage work or simply expressing oneself.
President Amanda Fox-Tongate listed her duties as organizing
events and meetings and most importantly keeping everyone
working together as a team. When asked what makes the group
unique, she said, "The members' personalities. Everyone has
something to add to this group, and our creative minds tend to
work together well. We are an animated group of individuals
who love to have fun. Overall our unique status comes from the
character of each and every member." She was thankful for the
opportunity to form wonderful relationships with other people
who were also interested in drama.

Amanda Hayes knows it's the place for her, "I think FCA is a

chapter of FCA in the St. Louis area, the Fellowship of Christian

Through activities, guest speakers, worship time and interacting
with friends and fellow believers, FCA provides students with
the opportunity to learn and grow in their walk with Christ.
With all of the stresses that face college students, dozens of
students attend weekly meetings and are grateful for the unique
experiences that being a part of FCA

the help of other members of the campus community. During
the winter of 2000-200 1 they sponsored a blanket drive for
the homeless and the poor. Boxes and flyers could be seen all
over campus encouraging others to help out.
President Renee Schilling's responsibilities consisted of planning
and leading meetings, planning the annual bakesale with the
Psychology Club, planning the initiation banquet and notifying those
students who had been accepted into the club. Schilling was happy
to be involved in Pi Gamma Mu because it fit into her busy schedule.
It did not require a lot of obligations or meetings, but it was an

With impressive statistics, it was no wonder that Dr. Hunsaker was so
proud of the team: 'This year's squad was rather small compared to
previous years. Moreover we lost several very talented people to
graduation. Thus I thought it would be a rebuilding year. But as small as
we were, the people carried on the tradition of excellence." Darius
Miller agreed wholeheartedly. "I feel that although smaller than last
year's team, we accomplished a lot with a small number of people."

ne night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.
But then some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord,
"What have we here?"
Those prints are large and round and neat,
But Lord, they are too big for yours or my feet.
My child, He said in somber tone,
For miles I carried you along.
I challenged you to walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.
You disobeyed, you would not grow,
The walk of faith, you would not know.
So I got tired, I got fed up,
And there I dropped you, on your butt.
Because in life, there comes a time,
When one must fight and one must climb.
When one must rise and one must stand,
Or leave their butt prints in the sand.

Being ranked as high as 3rd and spending six straight weeks in the top
five, they unfortunately lost their last two games of the year. That still doesn't
diminish the excitement of the numerous broken records which filled the season.
The team had records of 44 quarterback sacks, 608 total yards, 544 rushing
yards, 8 touchdowns and 56 points in various games. Brandon Murphy, Dennis

magine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together.
For much of the way, the Lord's footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the
pace. But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds.
circles, departures and returns.
For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line
with the Lord s, soon paralleling His consistently. You and Jesus are true friends!
This seems perfect, but then an interesting thing happens: Your footprints that once etched the
sand next to Jesus' are now walking precisely in His steps. Inside His larger footprints are your
smaller ones, you and Jesus are becoming one. This goes on for many miles, but gradually you
notice another change.
The footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger. Eventually they disappear
altogether. There is only one set of footprints. Theyliave become one. This goes on tor a long
time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back.
This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all over the place. Stops. Starts. Gashes in the sand.
A veritable mess of prints. You are amazed and shocked. Your dream ends. Now you pray:
"Lord, I understand the first scene with the zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was just
learning. But you walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with you.'
'That is correct."
"...And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your
step; followed you very closely."
"Very good. You have understood everything so far."
"...When the smaller footprints grew and I filled in Yours, I suppose that I was becoming like
you in every way."
"So, Lord, was there a regression or something? The footprints separated, and this time it was
worse than at first."
There is pause as the Lord answers with a smile in his voice. "You didn't know? That was
when we danced."
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven. A time to weep, a time
to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance."
