A Glass Slipper

A glass slipper... need I say more? Many a young, romantic heart has wished for her prince to seek her and find her and wisp her away to a better life. But in all the stories, there is only ONE slipper to fit ONE foot; only ONE romantic getaway.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
JOHN 1:1-5

There was, there is, and there is yet to come, THE ONE. He's like the slipper in that he is the perfect fit. The difference is that we were made to FIT HIM. Perfectly made how he wanted us to be so that we could fit together with him. Not just one shoe for one person, but ONE savior to fit ALL mankind, with one place to go: HEAVEN! the ultimate romantic getaway. No pain, no sorrow, no rejection and best of all: the perfect fit, you and me along side the Word, Jesus Christ.

  1. It's funny how as people we always seem to elevate one person or one group of people as better than all others. One glass slipper for one special person and that's all that there is. Nobody else is good enough so they all get left out.

    Fortunately, God views things different. Fortunately, He wrote the story. True, there is still one "Prince," but amazingly there are glass slippers for everyone.

    I was trying to think of some joke about having to wash my glass slippers since they'd get so funky, but I realized that it's just as true for everyone else as well. Our sins fill those beautiful glass slippers with so much spiritual funk...

    Here's where I write something about the blood of Christ being the Holy equivalent to the shoe spray used in bowling alleys and get condemned to hell...

    I figure it this way: God's the one that gave me this twisted sense of humor that I find silly symbolisms like that. Hopefully He'll spray my slipper down good.

    I'm glad that you're starting to write again! Keep it up!
