A new pair of old shoes


Eric went to small group last Thursday night by himself since I was working. He said at the end they were going around the room and praying individually. The man who went first was Mike. He's an older guy, a security guard who works nights, and he's a little different. So he prayed and when he was done, got up, crossed the room, and headed upstairs. Eric thought it was strange because everyone else was still praying, but he thought "whatever". Then he heard him rustling around upstairs and the front door opening and closing. So Mike left group a little early. So when they were ALL done praying, Eric said his goodbyes and headed upstairs to find...his shoes were missing. Mike had taken Eric's shoes and left his! The funny part is, they don't even wear the same size! Mike's shoes are a good 1/2 size bigger than Eric's. So Eric wore home an old pair of big shoes that weren't his. I cracked up when he told me the story. He still doesn't have his shoes back.

The small group leader did. He will probably bring Eric's shoes Thursday and we'll exchange. Although Eric says he no longer wants his shoes!
