.shoeless and humbled.
The pavement felt like needles, pressing hard into my feat. I winced with the pain and clenched my jaw as I crossed the wet asphalt. I honestly don't think I have felt much worse of a pain. The cold had not yet turned my feat numb, so every little thing I stepped on was pain. By the time I arrived at Jessi's house, mentally I was regretting the walk to come. Yet, somehow, God kept me smiling and positive through the whole thing.
It was a long 4.3 miles from my house to get to school barefoot and walking. But we made it and I have never been more humbled by such an experience. We met up with others along the way and ended up with a large group by the time we arrived at school.
I thank God for the life he has blessed me with . I pray for those who do not have shoes on their feet. I pray that the hearts of those around us will be humbled enough to give up something they have for a pair of shoes for someone in another country.
I seriously want to play a bigger part in raising awareness for those without shoes. I never realized how big of an issue it really is! I hope you will do your part and join me too!
PS: Spokane tomorrow to go Prom Dress Shopping with my mom :)
