I finally watched the whole movie, "The Christmas Shoes." If you have not viewed this movie yet, I hightly suggest you do. View it with an open mind, not just as another sappy movie. It is far more than that. I has so much family importance values in it.
Are you one of those that pours yourself into your work? That has little to no time with your family? Has missed many of your childrens programs? Well then this movie is definitely for you. All too often we put money and material things first. We want the nicest looking house, dress a certian way, keep up with the Jones', drive nice vehicles, etc.
This isn't what life is about. In fact, the Lord does not want this for us either. The movie was well designed to get the point across loud and clear. If you are a sentimental person, have a box of Kleenex next to you. This movies hits home.
God Bless, enjoy life, make the best of it, and live like the current day is your last one.
