|I about broke my neck walking around the store wearing these things.|
I sat there mindlessly staring off into space when I noticed a box with a $3.00 label on them. I reached down and grabbed the tennis shoes from the rack. At first I was thinking cool I can pick these up for my daughter Erica and even if she turns out not to like them they did not cost much. Then another thought crossed my mind. Our Church has a homeless ministry. Once a month they hand out personal size toiletries to our homeless community. They will also hand out clothing, blankets and books when they have them available. So I tell my son Nathan "will you grab all of those shoes right there and take them up front?" I fill Jessica and Nathan in on what I am doing and together we collect 15 pairs of $3.00 tennis shoes.
I brought the shoes home and gave 1 pair to Erica. She said "look at what the tag says."
|I love it!|
I am taking this little note tag a a confirmation I am doing what the Lord would have me to do. Not only do I bring home 15 pairs of $3.00 shoes and a beautiful pair of high heels for Jessica the shoes that day were buy one pair get the other 50% off. So in reality half of the shoes were only $1.50!!! How much cooler can you get Lord. I walked out of the store paying $51.00 for 16 pairs of shoes!!!!! The Lord is so good.
Now, onto Jessica and the Winter Formal. Here is some pictures of her beautiful shoes.
And like I said earlier along with the Winter Formal come a new dress and shoes. Here is my beautiful Jessica with her new dress and shoes.
