One Day Without Shoes.

Today I joined people all over the world for One Day Without Shoes. I walked on rocky mountain roads, and played soccer without my shoes on, and every time I thought about how bad my feet hurt, I was reminded of the kids all over the world, many here in Guatemala, with bad or no shoes.

I know how fortunate I am to not only have one pair of shoes, but 10, when so many of the people I have met since moving here, only have one pair of worn out shoes that they wear every day. Yet so often we complain that we "have nothing to wear." We can't take the gifts God has given us for granted, because so many people would give anything to be in our shoes.
