Can shoes bring me happiness?
I originally posted this photo in December. Ever since then, my desire for these boots has steadily increased. I thought they might be the answer to my search for the perfect cute and comfortable shoe. When I read that every editor at Lucky Magazine was wearing a version of this shoe, I was confirmed in my choice. However, I had a gut feeling that I was beginning to live under the illusion that my next purchase was going to make me happy.
I don't think I have ever prayed specifically about purchasing shoes before, but I felt like I should ask God if I should buy them. After a couple of days, he said, "No. Give the money to _______" and gave me a specific name. Someone else needed the money, and I needed to be set free. So, I wrote a check for $127.95 and sent it on its way. And that made me happy.
