What St Peter might say about my shoes

In the promise of the breaking in of your shoes, you rejoice, even if now for a little while your feet have had to suffer various trials, and be clothed in Band-Aids all day, so that the genuineness of your desire for new shoes - being more precious than the ratty old ones you had before - may be found to result in your not looking like a homeless person.

Although you have not seen this breaking in, you love it, and even though you do not see it now, you believe in it and rejoice with an indescribable joy, for you shall receive the outcome of your sufferings, the ability to be seen in public.

(cf. I Peter 1.6-9)
