Shoes, Shoes ~ I Love Shoes!


I love shoes. Can one ever have too many shoes? Well yes – one probably can have too many as I recall Imelda R Marcos, First Lady of the Philippines had over 1060 pairs of shoes when they fled in 1986 from their home. She would travel the world to buy shoes when millions of Filipinos were living in extreme poverty. That is sad.

I’m not like that! I don’t have Jimmy Choos or anything that pricey or designer – but I do like shoes. The TV show “Sex in the City” brings attention to expense shoes and the love of them. So as I ponder my shoes I know there are limits and responsibilities in shoe purchasing.

I like to have the right color shoes for the outfit. I’m prone to not being able to pass up shoe sales – they just call to me. I love a good deal! I think I inherited my shoe gene from my mother. I do wear out shoes and as I age I can’t wear cheap shoes without an arch anymore – so comfort has become an issue. I won’t tolerate a look at the cost of pain in my feet. Shoes run a close 2nd to chocolate in my life. Like all good things in life - moderation is needed. I was reminded today that I have the knowledge, know the skill - but practising it is the hardest part. Restraint. A good reminder for myself as the economy is struggling and I wouldn't want to be called Imelda!


The price of a good pair of shoes can buy a Well for a family in a drought ridden land through MCC, or for some other creative giving ideas as the holidays draw near check out http://www.mcc.org/ I know it is something I'll certainly think about!


Song of Solomon 7:1 How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

I too am a shoe lover. I have payless shoe source sending me email alerts..Of course with a new outfit comes new shoes....I have far less now because when we moved I mistakenly left some in a box in the garage to ling so my dear dear husband THREW THEM AWAY! Yeah I thought of throughing away a few of his tools but did not. I'll just suffer and have to buy more shoes.
