"But after the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared...which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; that being justified by his grace, WE SHOULD BE MADE HEIRS." - Titus 3:4,6-7
What does this scripture have to do with my friend's poem "In Ugly's Shoes"? And, who would ever consider wearing ugly shoes? Lol... I've placed an excerpt of her poem below as it describes a moment in life where vulnerability has gone wrong and even in our darkest moments we still can find a glimpse of light. The journeying of believing in what you hope for long before you see it can be daunting, ugly, encouraging, discouraging, fun and grueling which can naturally make you forget you are entitled to abundant days, loving moments and a life filled with rich experiences. Walking in Faith might have you stumble into Ugly's shoes but you don't have to stay there. You have the choice to strap on a gorgeous heel because it's not what's presented that matters, it is what you choose to put on.
"Black heart, hardened
What else would it or should it be?
I was raised in era when
girls like me paid a man for a seed" - an excerpt form "In Ugly's Shoes" by Karyne Tinord (Poetry Diaries found on Amazon)
