And thus we embark on a lengthy -- but often fairly successful -- search. Today was "the day", and this time we were in hopes of finding two sets, as we haven't added anything new since last summer. So with our list of favorite Lincoln stores (and the prayers of a few friends -- thanks Abi!), we headed out.
It's always an 'exciting' challenge to find colors and styles we like in the variety of sizes......Men's department; ladies petite; woman's section; size 8-16 boys; little boys; size 8-16 girls; baby department........and you get the picture. Before long we end up with our arms full of bags and receipts, mentally calculating that we do indeed have something for everyone!!!
And today we came home especially rejoicing -- the Lord helped us find two 'sets'! After visiting about 20 stores (and some of them twice!!!), we were so grateful that in only 8 hours of shopping everything came together as we hardly dared hope!!!
I know this may seem a real tiny detail in the big scheme of things, but I'm so thankful that God does answer prayer and that He cares about the small things in life. Even down to placing 'J.C. Penny' next door to 'Christopher & Banks'. [smile]
