As I was dressing for work one morning last week, I was unsure as to which tennis shoe color to choose from. I was wearing a Jenks maroon colored dress with gray leggings. Maroon or gray?
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
I liked them both.
So guess what I did?!
I wore exactly that!
I wore them both! One of each! 🙂
After all, I work with 3 and 4 year olds!
It would be fun to see if any of them even noticed.
The funny thing was that the children noticed way more than the adults. Several of them told me with the innocence of a small child discovering something for the first time, “Miss Sandy! You have on the wrong shoe!!!”
Of course they would notice. They are like little sponges. They take in the entire world around them. They look, they listen, they smell, they taste, and they touch. Sometimes more than we care for them to. But that’s how they learn.
My feet were much closer to their visual field. Feet are frequently more on their eye level than faces. 🙂
Have you ever been at a place in your life where you have a decision to make and you are torn?
What do you do?
Do you look, listen, smell, taste and touch to come to your decision?
I tend to be more visual. Show me and I learn better.
But sometimes our decisions go beyond just using our senses.
A little common sense is more in order.
I have found in life too many times to mention that trusting my common sense usually gets me in trouble more times than not.
What I need to be trusting in is my God. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. My common sense is not.
No matter what color shoes I may be wearing, my feet need to be following the path Christ has set out for me. When I’m torn in my direction (on things bigger than which color shoe should I wear), I need to stop and seek the gentle guidance of my Lord. Through His word and prayer.
Let’s all trust in our Lord to set our paths straight.
And the next time you are torn, torn between whether to order the cake or the ice cream for dessert. Be like me! Order them both! We only live once! 🙂
Watch the path of your feet And all your ways will be established.
Love and laughter,
