Flip Flop Season

Deuteronomy 6:5 – Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (HCSB)

 

I am drinking my coffee this morning from my flip-flop mug my friend gave me. I love flip-flops and wear themflip flops and bag from the first hint of warmth in Spring until my toes are getting frosty in the Fall. I think blue toes add just the right hint of color to an outfit, don’t you?  People who know me know of my love of flip-flops and are always giving me things to do with flip-flops. I have been given this flip-flop mug, a flip-flop tumbler for cold drinks, flip-flop jewelry, a flip- flop towel, a decorative flip-flop, and even flip-flops to wear. I used to have flip-flop cookies until my grandkids ate them! All of these were gifts; some even from people that don’t know me well but know that I love flip-flops.  They see my love for flip-flops, but do they see my love for You, Lord? People know that I have my flip-flops all the time. Do they know that I am with You all the time?  When people see flip-flops they think of me. Do they think of You when then they see me?  Deuteronomy 6:5 tells me to love You with all my mind and all my heart, with my entire being and with all my might.  That says to me that everything I do, everything I say, and just the way I live day-to-day shows people how much I love you.  Romans 13:10 says to me that love doesn’t hurt anyone on purpose, and I interpret that to mean that I need to watch my thoughts which so often turn into words — or worse the words that come out without thought!  Lord, people can see from the way I dress that I love flip-flops.  I want them to see from the way I live that I love You.
