If Trees Could Talk...

Do you think this one would be speechless?
I think so, but only if the shoes could talk, too.

How many people, places, stories, mistakes, victories, tears, peals of laughter do you think those shoes have collectively seen?

It wonders me. A lonesome tree, on "the Loneliest Highway," somehow irresistibly beckoning people to cast off and toss upward their footwear, and drive away unshod.

Phenomenon? Yes. Lesson? Not sure... but it does remind me of the body of Christ

People from all walks of life, of every personality and history, gathered in collective wonder at their Redeemer. Casting off what was, and stepping forth in new life- the promise of purpose and lifeline of forgiveness their travelling companions.
