Faith Hope Love TOMS Custom Hand Painted Canvas Shoes
These are my very own TOMS that I painted for myself. Obviously, they are very special to me. I wanted to paint something that would warm my soul every time I looked down, something that would speak to me, something that may even speak to others, something that would have a story to tell... the whole essence of this "thing" that I do with the TOMS... writing my soul on my soles....
You see, I am not religious. I am not here to get all religious on you, but I have a fierce love for my God, my Abba Father, my main Man, my Homeboy. He is my Anchor. Hebrews 6:18 says: "We who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have have this HOPE as an ANCHOR for the SOUL, firm and secure." Without hope, without that... what is there? Imagine a life without hope? How.... hopeless. How dreadful and empty. God is my hope, my stronghold, my refuge, my strength, my ANCHOR. I cling to Him. So.... I drew this anchor with the banner clinging to it with the written words "Hope and Faith". The other shoe has the Cross with the banner wrapping around and the word "Love", after all, He IS Love. It was a very simplistic and spiritual, and emotional process for me while I was drawing and painting this out.
Near the anchor, you will also see a sparrow. The sparrow has always been a favorite symbol of mine. Back in the day, sailors had them tattooed on them for good luck. Sparrows were birds that were found near ports, which meant that if a sailor saw one, he had safely made his journey back home. My husband is in the Navy, and while he is not a sailor, every time he comes home from a deployment, I always think of that sparrow for some reason and I think of the safety he must feel when he reaches home. I feel the same way when I reach home too... meaning, when I cling to the Word and remember God's promises of Hope and Love for me.
The scriptures on the sides only seemed natural for the shoes. "Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105
So... wow, that's a long story about my shoes, but it means a lot. I hope that any shoes that I ever paint for you, tells a story like that and means just as much for you!
