Sunday Afternoon Music Video: Take off your shoes

mompriest's beautiful prayer welcomed us back to ordinary time - calling upon God to enter into our every breath. This song "Take off your shoes, this is holy ground you walk on." always gently reminds me that all we touch, hold, see, breathe in and breathe out - bears the mark of our Creator.

Take off your shoes today, walk on holy ground - wriggle your toes in its grass (if you're in the northern hemisphere!), breathe deeply of God's grace, play in the sweet waters he sends down.

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes...

-- Elizabeth Barrett Browning in Aurora Leigh


  1. Hmm, think I'd like to find a copy of that for my next labyrinth walk.

  2. Lovely, Michelle. Thank you.
