SHOES.....

Romans 10:15
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.


"A godly woman faces her challenges with prayer,
a sense of adventure,
and a great pair of SHOES!!!"


S - Serve God
H - Honor God
O - Obey God
E - Encourage Others
S - Show Others God's Love

SHOES was the theme of the Ladies Retreat at our church this past Friday night and Saturday.  
I can't even begin to explain the blessings that all the ladies who attended received.  
The end of the retreat was brought to a close by a young lady who spoke on humility and read the scripture where Jesus washed the feet of His disciples. (John 13:1-17).  
After she spoke.....thru tears.....each group of ladies took a basin full of water and we washed each others feet and rubbed in oils.  
I thought this was probably what we would do when we were asked to bring a hand towel with us on Saturday. 
 I have to say it was one of the most difficult things I've ever done.....
very humbling.  
I wept as I washed the feet of one of the ladies in my group and prayed for her and her family.  
I certainly came home that afternoon on a spiritual high!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes HE is!!!

Just gave me even more reason to keep on......

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb

  1. Debbie, I have also had an occasion where foot washing was done. I will never forget to this day seeing my pastor's wife washing my feet and praying for me. It is a humbling practice. Thank you for sharing with us!
