I bought these shoes 5 or 6 years ago - because they were on sale - super cheap!!! (I wonder why?) Yesterday, it occurred to me that I have virtually no purple clothing. I have a lavender twin set and these shoes. That is it. So, today, since the feds have gone from my place of business, I will wear these shoes and the lavender cardigan - well, and black pants and a black shirt.
I am off now to church... I think I will skip wearing the purple heels to church. The formal hour of silent prayer each week is such a blessing in my life. It has helped me to bring more prayer and meditation into my routine. And that can't help but be good!
My life is so busy, busy, busy, it sometimes can get overwhelming. I used to sit down to pray and after 15 minutes or a half hour, start thinking of everything I had to get done. Since I have made this commitment to be at my church from 5 to 6 a.m. each Thursday morning - there is no negotiation about it. I just go. I stay until the next person comes at 6 (or sometimes later). This has taught me how to stay still for an hour, and I am actually able to do that at home now.
