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.

Merry Christmas!




I just watched a 15 minute TED talk on compassion by Krista Tippett. Loved it. May I invite you to take 15 minutes of your time and give this talk a listen. It doesn't matter who you are or what you believe or where you are in your life. This talk can help each of us understand what compassion really is and how we can honestly seek it and practice it in our lives and how it can change our lives and those around us.

Today is Christmas. Those of us that celebrate Christmas are celebrating the birth of Christ, the birth of love, the birth of hope andgrace.  Jesus taught us all about compassion.Whatever our faith...whatever we are celebrating today, compassion is an important part of our lives if we are going to improve ourselves and our little corner of the world.

May we all seek to be more compassionate in our lives in the coming year. Here is the link:Krista Tippett: Reconnecting with Compassion. Please click on this link and open your heart and mind.

Thanks for stopping by. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
 Love & Light! Until next time....peace, Jeanne
