What freedom (after the initial soreness when in contact with a sharp rock) to feel the cool pavement and then the warm pavement. To feel the soft, welcoming grass, to wiggle my toes in a warm puddle. My feet thank me for giving them the freedom to connect with the earth, to enjoy the richness of the mud.
We were created barefoot, yet we restrict our feet everyday. We all have reasons, be it "fashion" or "support" or something else. I challenge you to throw off your shoes three times this week. Go outside barefoot; let your feet engage and enjoy creation. Then leave a comment and tell me how it went!
