Cute Shoes

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 7/2/12

I took the photo of the felt shoes in Pushkin, Russia, during a Russian festival called Maslanitsa, which celebrates the beginning of spring, and is observed by eating as many blini (crepes) as one can hold! Although these traditional felt shoes were too costly to allow me to shod my own feet with them, they reminded me of the verse in Isaiah 52:7:

"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!''

May there be many beautiful feet proclaiming God's reign in Russia!
