Photo Prayer 2020-34 — My Shoes

Folk wisdom says: before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. It says: before you judge a woman, dance backwards for an hour in high heels. I have walked a thousand miles in these shoes. Now, before I trash them, what shall I say of those miles? What wisdom have I gathered? Judge less often! Appreciate more often! My journey, yours — who would have guessed? Who can explain? More than a series of detours, here we are, new shoes, a new day. What’s next, God? An easy ramble or an uphill slog? A delightful adventure or dreadful agony? Surprise me!

Parting shot of my worn-out, twice-repaired shoes.

Looks like these would make good soup. I just made some stew from an old pair of mine and it gave a subtle overtone to the meal.

Be careful asking God for a surprise - you might find yourself dancing backwards in high heels!
