On Holy Ground

Taking off our shoes can be such a liberating experience. Taking off our shoes can help us cool down. Taking off our shoes can help us really connect with the ground beneath our feet, the smooth and the rough. Taking off our shoes can bring relief. Taking off our shoes can bring abandon. Taking off our shoes can make us feel vulnerable OR powerful. So many possible emotions in one simple act.
Before embarking on our Lenten labyrinth, folk take off their shoes and soak up whatever the path offers them, a different journey every time. A journey made in the knowledge of Christ walking alongside, touching toes with us. A journey that has the potential for as many and more emotions as the simple act of taking off our shoes.

I have read and reflected! Amazing!
Changing the phrase 'taking off our shoes' to 'loving Jesus' has had quite an impact .....loving Jesus can be such a liberating experience ..... can make us feel vulnerable OR powerful!
In changing this simple phrase, I get a sense of the journey with Christ and the potential is endless!
Finding God in the ordinary, an Altar in the World......living out the words...blessings indeed. Dx
