To Church Without Shoes

To Church Without Shoes
Those little stubby toes...I could just eat them!  Well, not on Sunday.  I would prefer for them to be covered for church!  My children spent the night with their grandparents with the intent of going to church the next morning.  I packed shoes.  They were still in the bag the next day, but on that Sunday morning, no shoes could be found!  So, off to church they went without shoes!  Who is going to let a silly little thing like that hinder them?!  Well, probably me. 
 I enjoyed this little story of my barefooted Brooke Owen going to 'Big' church with her grandparents, walking into the sanctuary in all of her freedom and sitting on a pew for all to see.  I wondered...and pondered...would I be so free? 

I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.  Psalm 119:45

Note:  I have enjoyed Yvonne at StoneGable's 'Sunday Scripture' every week, since I entered the wonderful land of Blog. She has inspired me to use my Sunday post in the same way.  I did not grow up a Christian and the Lord in His grace offered me a new path.   It is amazing what I have learned in my journey toward the cross and the life lessons I am learning from children.  I have often said that God uses them to teach me, just as much as I teach them, if not more!
