Mr. Jim’s Brown Shoes…….. An essay by William Marshall

Mr. Jim used to tell a story about his brown shoes.  He tells it that he stopped wearing brown shoes years ago.  Seems they were causing him sin problems so he just stopped wearing them and threw them all out. 

I happened to be dealing with trying to stop smoking at the time.  He was relating his brown shoes to my smoking. 

He said, “What if I go in my closet and find that brown shoes have shown back up there?  I throw them away, right?  No brown shoes, I already decided, I ain’t putting them on.”  He suggested I do the same with the smokes, just act like I found some old brown shoes, just throw them away, the decision had been made years ago. 

When did you decide to quit brown shoes?
