(Disclaimer: I love shoe analogies and this is a few of the fun thoughts i sometimes have-usually when traveling)
I confess–I love shoes. All kinds. Dressy, fun, flats, mules, boots, and flip flops–all kinds. Some days I even change several times, after all life is unpredictable.
One of the best things about shoes is that they won’t let you down. They stick with you through thick and thin–literally.
If you gain a few pounds, they still love you.
If you lose a few, they still work for you.
Shoes are not fair weather friends–unlike your jeans that refuse to adjust to that ice cream cake you ate for supper last night.
Once you find a good fit with shoes–they fit.
When I was pregnant I fell deeply in love with shoes and jewelry and that love hasn’t ever faded.
Shoes can cheer you up on a dark day or even provide a warm hug when you need it, consider that feeling you get when you slip your foot into a warm, fuzzy pair of house shoes–it just can’t be duplicated.
(here is a possible spiritual application for those who rolled their eyes at the previous thoughts:)
Do you ever think about your shoes? What do they say about you? About your priorities? Where are you right now spiritually? What kind of shoes are you wearing?
have a great day!
