It is fitting on Christmas Day to read a story about love After all love came down at ChristmasMartuin Avdyeitch is a humble shoemaker a good man whose Job like suffering has caused him to wish he is dead It is hard to keep the faith when life gets out of control and God seems absent An encounter with an old man encouraged him to read the New Testament and his spiritual perspective starts to shift Tolstoy said And the he read the he understood and the brighter and happier it grew in his heart Martuin has a remarkably teachable soul And he began to measure his life by these words Martuin lives in a little basement room with only one window from which he has the habit of looking out onto the street Even though all he could see are the feet of the passer bys he recognizes the people by their boots One day God comes visiting in the most unexpected ways on that familiar street and Martuin learns that He is not absent after allWhat a heartwarming story I never knew Tolstoy wrote stories with a spiritual theme I am glad to have read one
