The Dusty Sandal

The Dusty Sandal began years ago as I watched my own children and realized that when Jesus died, there must have been children in the streets of Jerusalem. Also, there were children wanting to be around Jesus when he walked the areas of Judea. Chapter 19 of Matthew tells us the apostles tried to run them off. These two realizations inspired the story of how the young beggar boys, Jesse and Bart, found one of the sandals belonging to Jesus and witnessed his death and resurrection.
