our pastor gave an interesting sermon on sunday- doors and shoes-think about the doors that have been opened or closed during your lifetime [opportunities, triumphs, tragedies, disappointments, etc.], and the kinds of shoes you've worn-are they comfy, pinch your toes, make you feel fabulous, a rash purchase [now they're in the back of your closet?] -so that leads me to ask the question what kinds of doors and shoes do you want to encounter in 2009:
doors that are-
(re)-opened to friends/family- old and new; i've already had a taste of this when karen opened her door to mary and i for a wonderful afternoon.
opened to new opportunities and experiences
closed to negativity
opened-to refreshing and renewal of mind, body and soul
shoes that are-
♥very comfy and make you feel restful
♥some that are maybe a bit tight, but put you outside of your comfort zone to discover something you might not have otherwise noticed?
♥a pair that bring out something hidden inside of you-a new challenge-learn a new skill
♥ a pair with real high heels that make you feel tall and proud
♥ a pair that will take you on a wonderful journey
something to think about-i'm leaning towards an all of the above! maybe you can pull out that pair you haven't worn in a while-who knows what you'll find.
