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.

Nice obedience. You did the right thing. You will probably find them at a consignment store for 1/2 price : )
