I saw it, and had to have it! It's not the first time this week that it's happened, either. Yesterday was my birthday, so, of course, when I walked into Olcott's (an upper-class store, full of gorgeous allurements for the home) and saw those darling birthday plates, the words just pushed their way out of my lips, before I even thought about it: "I'll take them all! Wrap them in fun birthday paper, please." So, when my friend Emily showed me her new blog, I wanted one. And, though I didn't even know what a blog was till three weeks ago, here I am.... making my first blog ever.
So, welcome! Like most things I do, I'm not certain the direction this will take, but I hope that it steers you towards Jesus, and that you will be encouraged along the way. :)
I have to tell you, too, that having everything your eyes land on is not necessarily healthy for you. Ever since I've brought those plates home, I have had little sleep, as it's kept me up at night, thinking about Katrina victims and how frivolous this purchase was, though Mike was fine with me getting them as my birthday gift...from him. (See what a good helpmeet I am, saving him from extra work?) But see, I didn't stop there. Oh, no! I jumped with both feet right into Ebay and made a best offer on the matching bowls. Well, it bit me in the hiny, 'cuz I made a best offer and did it all wrong. Thus.... I ended making it look like I was offering MORE than the asking price. Sheesh!!! Now my stomach hurts. WARNING: Giving in to the lust of the flesh is hazardous to your health!
The Bible says, "Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, nor are the eyes of man ever satisfied" (Proverbs 27:20). I'm living proof!
