A Minister’s Wife Just Rambling

Great Shopping Day! September 13, 2009

I am not what you would call a shopper. I don’t really enjoy shopping. One thing is I never find anything I like when I am actually looking to buy, and another is I find things I like when I don’t have the money.

I am a clearance rack shopper when I do need to buy new clothes. Since I am starting a new job in a couple of weeks, I decided I better go shopping for some new clothes. I am working overtime for a couple of weeks, so I decided I could use that money to treat myself to some new clothes. The job I have now I don’t have to dress up since I am the only one in the office. However, my new job is at our church and I need to dress more professionally. My new title is Administrative Assistant to the Minister of Students.

While I was on my way to the mall I prayed and asked the Lord to help me find some clothes that I would actually like and for some good bargains. That is exactly what He did. I started out shopping at Sears since my husband works there and we get 20% off. I found 3 pair of pants and 2 tops here all of which were 75-90% off. I then got 20% more off. WOW!! It was only $58.00. Then I went to JC Penny’s and found a pants suit on the 75% off rack. After that I went to Macy’s to look at some perfume I have wanted since last Christmas. My friend Kim works in the perfume department. She told me that they were having a huge sale on the perfume, for the same price as the perfume only I got the perfume, lotion, and bath gel, also a little bag with another bottle of perfume, lotion and bath gel. I went ahead and splurged. I thought I could give the second gift set as a Christmas gift. That way mine was “free”. I was so excited.

I started feeling guilty since I hadn’t bought for anybody but myself. So I checked out the men’s clearance racks at Penny’s. I got Randy a pair of suit pants that were $100 on sale for $19.97….amazing. I found Dustin a pair of dress pants that were $50 on sale for $9.97. I went back to Sears to look for a shirt and found Dustin a shirt that was reg. $42 on sale for $7.99 and I got 20% off.

I may become a shopper after all. It felt so good to get some new clothes and to save $430 at the same time. I didn’t even spend $200 it would have been $636…..can’t beat that. I give all the praise to God for hearing my prayer and answering it.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!~ Isaiah 65:24

  2. I so appreciate the way you look to the Lord for, and about, everything. I suspect He loves it as well. I’m thrilled with the way He has blessed you!
