Evidence of Grace


This is just a portion of the shoes - men's shoes - that I had to walk over to get in the house tonight after women's bible study. There were two other similar collections inside the door. These are the shoes I had to step over and around after parking half-way out the drive and walking to the house because there was nowhere near the house to park. The shoes and parked cars are absolute evidence of God's grace. Men, men, men - in our basement - seeking God, praying, laughing and doing whatever else it is they do when men gather together to meet with God. I know what we do at the women's bible study, but that's just women, so I don't know what all goes on here on Tuesday nights when the men meet. But this I know, I will gladly walk down the drive in the dark and step over piles of shoes to walk into my house to hear men fellowshipping in our basement. And the other cool part, they aren't just from our church, our country or our age group. Gotta love that!

I was initially relieved to know that Kenny also left that many pairs of shoes near the door. Now that I know it's a whole group of men, I feel kind of bad. I think I have five pairs in the living room right now...

I see my sandals! I don't think I could be more grateful to you and Kenny for offering your house up like you do. Those Tuesdays have healed my heart like nothing else. God never fails to show up!
