An Innocent List of Things to Buy that Cost $40:

1. Fergalicious “Blossom” Pumps

(…not that I’m really good at walking in high heels.)

2. Burberry Sport 1 oz.

3.Herringbone fabric gloves with leather palms

(Rather cheeky.)

4. one King’s Singers ticket, Southern Theatre

(of course, it might snow.)

5. Coach Op Art sateen skinny mini

(He’s so small. For cards and coins.)

6. J. Crew patent leather belt

(but then I’d have to get a sweater to go with it.)

7. Mossimo cowl neck sweater dress

(It’s rather green, eh?)

8. Two Lips Nile rain boots

(These are serious, now.)

9. Skullcandy Agent Throwback headphones

(If that’s just not vintage enough for you…)

10. Jansjo floor/reading lamp, black (IKEA)

(Sleek, yes…)

11.HOL side table, acacia (IKEA)

15.one winter clothing packet for Gospel for Asia missionaries

 

“I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked.” 2 Corinthians 11:27 (NIV)

“But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.” I Timothy 6:8

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6: 28-33

“How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7
