Faith Boots

When my brother was little he had snow boots that reminded me of something an astronaut would wear. Whenever I hear of someone talking about stepping out in faith, I think of those big ole' snow boots. No, the boots in the picture are not them-those are fireman boots according to our son who wore them at 2 1/2. Faith boots are much bigger and frankly, they are a little harder to walk in. In fact, they are uncomfortable! As I type this, I have my Faith Boots on! No, I am not wearing snow boots but the image of those navy blue snow boots. My friend Fay is wearing a pair too as well as our friend Bob. Chelsia, a student, has at least one boot on and a few others are looking at their boots considering climbing in. We are Faith Walking together. We have the opportunity to wear our boots for 11 days to Vietnam and care for orphans there. We are praying, getting our passports ready, packing, preparing our families, praying, checking the weather in Vietnam, praying, and waiting on God to get us there. The boots require less of me and more of Him. I will keep you updated as we embark on this journey wearing out Faith Boots.

That is awesome. I will be thinking of you and praying for you. I don't know if I could be strong enough to go and take care of orphans without wanting to bring them all home with me. You are such a blessing!
