A Wife Loved Like The Church

5 love signs – touch, time, service, affirmation, gifts. But what about clothes?

Posted on: April 14, 2010

Have you ever heard of the Five Love Languages? It’s essentially the five ways people give and receive love. I really wish clothes were on the list. Because I love getting clothes (or shoes!). In fact, over the years I think God has really shown me some love by giving me amazing deals on clothes – especially when I least expect it.

On Monday, I took the girls to Wal-Mart for a quick errand. Since we didn’t have anything planned, no real shopping to do, I decided to just stroll around the place (a rarity with two kids).  When I got over to the shoe department I found these:

They were marked down to $5 so I thought I’d treat myself to them. After all, they are polka dotted, which I love.

Anyways, when I was checking out, I looked at the total and thought “Um, that can’t be right.” It was $4.78. Remember, the shoes were $5. I leaned over to see the checkout screen better when I noticed….

The shoes were only $1!

I did a little happy dance and celebrated feeling loved.

Thanks God!

How fun!! Those seemingly “little” things can really communicate how God cares for us in the details!! I love it!!Builds my faith for the “bigger” things!

Love those shoes! Super cute! btw…random fact…my hubby works with the author of the 5 Love Languages on events that they do and he is the REAL DEAL. Seriously, one of the most genuine human beings. That book is one of my favorite marriage books (at least in the top 5) and I’ve read A LOT of them!

We read it years ago before we got married and I love it too! It really helped us better understand where the other person is coming from.

Adorable shoes and phenomenal deal!! Hope you enjoy them and feel loved each time you see those cute polka dots : )

$1 for those cute shoes? Priceless!!!
