My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Mystery


Many years ago concerning my faith, I thought that I had many of the answers. I lived a life where so many things appeared to be black and white. It seemed simple. All of my beliefs fit into a nice little package. A package that I held onto. It made me feel secure. Through several crises that box got blown to smithereens. I now know that what I had believed as true, which I felt brought a sense of security to me was really a false security. I have fewer answers and a great deal more questions. I no longer have a nice neat package to hold on to, but I know that God holds me. There are many gray areas. In the meantime my favorite word has become mystery.

I love a mystery.

They make life interesting.
They leave the door open for unexpected possibilties.
They keep hope burning.
Sometimes they are never solved.
Some have a magical ending.
