One Day Without Shoes-

Tomorrow is "One Day Without Shoes". It's a day to remember all the children of the world who don't even have a simple pair of shoes. Many live their lives without a single pair. The damage parasites and infections can have (from not having shoes) is painful to see.

Google "Podoconiosis or soil-transmitted parasites" if you want to see how one pair of shoes can make the difference.

Tom's shoes gives one pair of shoes for every pair you buy on their website and are the sponsors of this event. To read more see "One Day Without Shoes".

This next set of verses hurts my heart as I think of what I have not yet given....

" 'Why do you ask me about what is good?' Jesus replied. 'There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.'
'Which ones?' the man inquired.
Jesus replied, 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself.'
'All these I have kept,' the young man said. 'What do I still lack?'
Jesus answered, 'If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.'

When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth."

Matthew 19:17-22

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
