to have lots of money?
I think this a lot. It doesn't consume me or anything like that, but every once in a while, I'll come across a financial need and think that it would be really nice to be able to meet it.
Or a want.
This morning, I definitely found a want.
I went shopping in a store in our town with a friend and decided to try on some bathing suits. (I know, I must have felt like punishing myself or something, but I thought if anything, it might be good for a laugh.)
Well, I found this gorgeous dark brown and teal blue suit that actually, believe it or not, looked good on me.
Now I think this is a first for me since my early twenties, if not my teens. The term "nice-looking bathing suit on Leigh" just seems like an oxy-moron to me.
But there it was. A very flattering bathing suit. I was so tempted to buy it.
So, what stopped me?
Yeah. Not in this lifetime.
However, it did help me get some perspective on the whole want vs. need thing. God totally provides for my needs (& some of my wants, too). And it's okay for me to not get something that I want.
Even if it did look pretty darn good on me.
