Special Request, ‘The Christmas Shoes’

This is a special request by our dear friend Linda’s daughter, Lyn–The Christmas Shoes. Dedicated to Lyn’s mother, Linda Sorci, who recently left us for a mansion in Our Father’s house.

We willingly pay the tribute of our tears.

    This is a very nice and heart-warming Christmas song! Thanks for requesting it, Lyn!

    Thank you Joshua and thank you so very much Lee! That was very special. There are just no words for the sadness and heartache, but I know Mom is with Jesus and she is at peace. She’s watching down and praying for all of us. That is what brings comfort. Thank you again Lee! God Bless all of you and I pray for a safe, healthy and peaceful Christmas season for all of you. I hope everyone is able to spend time with the ones they love. Cherish that time. Sending love and happiness to all of you ❤

    My mom, Linda, loved this song and the sentiment. Thank you for sharing this with the group. We miss her more than words can express. But take comfort that she is in Heaven with God. She said towards the end that what would make her the most happy is to climb into God’s lap and get a hug. I picture her just as this. In God’s loving embrace.

    Oh, my, there are no words, only tears. I miss her here, but know she is at peace. Blessings to her family.

      Thank you so much Erlene! Mom always spoke about you and worried when you were ill and prayed for healing and ease from pain. She cared so much each person here and all of you held a very special place in her heart. I pray that you are doing well. I’m sure Mom is watching down and praying for all of us. That is what she did best while she was here and I bet it’s no different from heaven.You are such a sweet, kind person. God Bless!

    This one really tugs at the heart. I saw the made for TV movie “The Christmas Shoes” about the story behind the song. It stars Rob Lowe – and of course, it is a tear-jerker. As I get older it doesn’t take much to bring tears to my eyes – maybe it is because every day is a day closer to seeing Jesus face to face. (and all those who have gone before!).
