Beautiful Feet

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who tells of peace and brings good news of happiness, who tells of saving power, and says to Zion, "Your God rules!" Is. 52:7 (New Life Version).
Some people I know are just not "feet people" but I am. One of the things I love most about Jane's earthly body are her beautiful feet. I have had the privilege and joy of rubbing lotion on her feet for many years now, and am able to do so on a more regular basis these past few weeks.

I captured a photo of her feet while she rested this evening, and decided to share how lovely they are with the rest of you.

These feet have served her well; walked her to her first day of kindergarten, ran through her first mud puddle, waded in the ocean, walked down the aisle with me, danced with me, cuddled with me, tickled her children with them, and shifted gears on her favorite motorcycle.

It's amazing how easily we take our feet for granted; I just wanted to appreciate hers tonight. Thank you for letting me share.

Dear Doug:
All this writing you are doing is so beautiful and so important for you, Jane, and the family. Needless to say you and Jane have written a book about a such an important journey of faith. Love and Prayers, Regina

Thanks for sharing Jane's feet!
The hymn, Take My Life... contains my favorite lines:
"Take my feet and let them be,
Swift and beautiful for Thee
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Your love,
At the impulse of Your love."

As a quadriplegic those words have special meaning to me. I look forward to my new body as I'm sure you, Jane, do as well. In the meantime, enjoy those foot rubs!
Blessings in Jesus, Jack
