I was at Target shopping for socks. Socks are a very practical and sensible thing to buy. But the sock department is cleverly next to the SHOES. Not nice.
So I was dutifully browsing socks, when a pair of ankle boots on the end of a seductively placed shoe shelf caught my eye. They were in the wrong place, next to a bunch of rain boots, and they stood out like a beacon of cuteness calling to me with their siren song.
But I resisted. I mean, ankle boots are more of a want than a need. I guess.
Here’s where it gets trippy. No one walked past the boots. There was no earthquake. All on their own, those boots fell off the shelf. Like a sign from Heaven.
Being a nice person (and slightly curious), I went over to the boots and picked them up. They were my size. NO LIE.
Now hold on for this: Not only were they super cute, had fallen off the shelf of their own accord, and were my size. They were on clearance. CLEARANCE, friends!
When the Lord speaks, what can we do but obey? I purchased those boots. You’d better believe it.
