The other morning while sitting in the hot tub with my family I realized that I have the beginning of a plantars wart on the bottom of my right foot.
This foot also is currently covered in blisters from my new sandals.
I recently bought only my third pair of rainbow sandals ever.
I wear these shoes until they literally disintegrate into nothing, so these new shoes are a bit of a shock to my lazy feet. The strap on top is currently SUPER tight and the arches aren’t broken in so the tops of my feet are rubbed pretty raw.
Then yesterday I was in a rush getting ready for an all staff day at my church, and in the middle of putting on my shoes I noticed that the bottom of my foot was COVERED in white and blue paint.
What the what?
(I’m currently refreshing my bike with some spray paint, it’s gonna be awe-some!! But apparently I’m not being super careful)
Ew, for the third time.
Trina, get it together, your feet are super gross right now.
There was no time to dwell, however, so I ignored the nasty paint on the bottom of my feet, shoved on a pair of shoes, and walked to church with my son in tow.
As soon as our meeting started I glanced to the left only to notice a tub of soapy water. . . and a towel. . . and a chair. . .
(You been a Christian long enough you know what this means.)
Then my pastor, slash boss, begins our meeting with, “We would like to wash your feet.”
I almost burst out laughing.
“Of course you wanna wash my feet today, cause let me tell you som-thin, cousin, them suckers are a mess.”
Sometimes in church we tend to focus on the somber. . . the dramatic.
But, please of please, let’s never be accused of ignoring the joy.
I mean, how ironic that the day my feet could not be more disgusting is the same day my boss wants to see em.
How sweet that my God would orchestrate such a hilarious situation for me to enjoy.
Are ya’ll fans of irony?
Cause yesterday was chock-full of just the sweetest, silliest, stupidest irony.
And I loved it.
“When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” John 13: 12-14
Bring on your stinky feet, folks. I’m ready to wash em all.
They can’t be worse then mine.
