Red Shoes

We insisted she buy these shoes for him.... 
knowing that he would find them just delightful.  And he did.  
They stayed nice and tidy, bright red, without scuffs or dirt.  
He was never able to run and play in them and wear them out 
like most boys at the age of seven.  
But he was content.

Your feet are beautiful, Samuel.  You brought good tidings and proclaimed peace and salvation.  And your rich and meaningful life was a reminder to us all that 
Our God Reigns!

My faith is richer and deeper because of you. 

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"  Isaiah 52:7
