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.

JOIN ME ON MY ECLECTIC JOURNEY.....

Thursday, August 12, 2010

O God of light, from whom all life flows, may we glimpse the shinings of your presence in all things. In the darkness of our world, in places of fear and terrible wrong, and in the darknesses of our own lives, in times of confusion and doubt, may we glimpse the shinings of your life-giving presence.



~Celtic Treasure Daily Scriptures and Prayer by J. Philip Newell

I love this book and this particular little prayer which I read this morning. So much of what goes on in our lives can seem so overwhelming. This prayer helps me have hope and moves me to trust and look a bit closer and deeper at all of the life around me. ~Jeanne

I think both the good and the bad are all part of God's plan. We learn from each.
