#3 Material Things

Here is my picture for today! As you can see these are purses. I am working on "issues" that I have with materialism. My conscience has been pricked and I felt that maybe this was God's way of saying that I need to put away my worldly ways.... you know owning purses that barely get used- and to top it off they are not cheap purses. So, I prayed about it and it was clear what must be done. Since I am going to be in a wedding in May and the cost of the whole trip will be costly I am using the proceeds of my sales to save for that trip. I was looking at the bridesmaid dress yesterday and just for the dress (no alterations or accessories) will be around $250 ugh... maybe I can make enough out of the sale of these purses to pay for the dress. I brought the purses with me to work since some of the girls were interested in looking at them. Then I think I will be posting them on eBay.
Paul and I also went through all the videos that we have and we have slimmed down quite a bit and will be posting them on eBay.
