still longing for...

these booties.
not sure why.
maybe because I found out my dear friend KS has the suede ones.
maybe because they are beautiful and practical
maybe because I struggle being content with the outrageous amount of blessings that God has showered over my life.  I have way too much.  Don't deserve any of it.
This quote is so true.
I'm without booties.  I'm without a Longchamp tote.  I'm without a sparkly Burberry cap.  I'm without a macbook.  I'm without genuine, non-material, desires of my heart.
and that's fine.

“Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the LORD;

trust in him…

7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him…”

Psalm 37:4-5, 7

I don't think God cares about booties...I know He doesn't care about Longchamp totes (they are mostly plastic.  hahah)  I do know that He provided for me a perfectly imperfect husband and allowed me to work in the place I desired to work for 2 years. Yesterday, I picked out new paint colors (originals were rejected)...I used to think I wouldn't be able to paint until we bought a house or condo but now, while I don't get to actually paint, I will have painted walls!!!!

He knows my desires...and He cares for them.  He will take care of the other things that really matter too...probably not the booties...but you never know.
