Day 28 – Thankful for shoes

I’ve always loved going barefoot since I was a little girl, but recent developments have given me a greater appreciation for shoes. Not only do they keep our feet warm in cold weather, but they protect our feet from germs and sharp or hard objects.

As many of you already know, a little over a month ago I broke and jammed my toe.

I had been wearing a post-op boot ever since, until a few days ago when I started being able to walk barefoot. That was nice, but I had to be oh, so careful, not to bump it on anything.

And I still couldn’t wear a shoe because the pressure on the top of my foot caused pain.

Good news! Yesterday I was able to wear an actual shoe for the first time since the injury! Woohoo! I walked around in it all day! I had to wear it without a sock, as socks squeeze my toes together, which still hurts. But, hey! Progress is progress! Right?

So, today I thank God for healing my toe enough to be able to wear a shoe almost all day!

Today I am thankful for shoes!

What about you? Are you thankful for shoes? If so, why? Do you also like to walk barefoot when conditions are right?

  1. Yes, I am very thankful for shoes. I have sores on the bottoms of both feet and walking without shoes is very painful. In order to correct the problem with the bottom of my feet, the podiatrist said that she would have to do surgery in which she breaks all of my toes. No! I’m just living with the pain and walking with Natural Balance shoes which is what she told me to wear. I’m very thankful for shoes!

  2. I’m thankful for shoes too, especially the sturdy kinds and not the ones that fall apart when I walk in them, ugh! 🤨

    Reading this I thought about Ephesians 6:15, here’s the NLT version, “For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.”

    1. Yes, the ones that fall apart right away aren’t worth the money one pays for them. I remember my mom getting me a pair of sandals once that came apart after 2 weeks.
      I thought about that verse, too! But I couldn’t think how to work it in.
      I like that translation! Which one is it? I don’t think I’ve read that verse in that translation before.
