God is very clever…

I’ve been praying for a couple things for myself recently…  First is that I would get a television for a good price.  Not just because it would be nice to have, but because I need to replace the monitor for my desktop computer anyway, and an LCD television could also be hooked up to my DVD player that is collecting dust in a box.  Secondly, that God would help me improve my finances.  Putting aside the seemingly contradictory nature of these two requests for a minute, I am pleased to say that God has accomplished both in an amazing way.

To start with, my hunt for a television has ended.  I had decided a while ago that my tax return was going to go into a television for myself… because it was money I had done without for the last year, and I could use it how I liked without messing up my budget.  So before telling the story, here is the end result….

This is the major blessing God saw fit to give me...

I had gone to Best Buy last week to price compare.  I found a very nice 26″ LCD made by Sharp… absolutely beautiful picture quality, and I loved the way it looked.  Unfortunately, said television was $800… I said “I’m not paying that much for a television!”  So lucky me went to work yesterday, and the above pictured 32″ Sony Bravia was on clearance for about $700 (originally $900).  It was still more than I had anticipated, but I decided I was going to go for it.  The fun bit being that since I bought the display model, I got 30% off the price for it… then another 10% for working there… then another 10% for signing up for a credit card.  Bottom line… I got a television 6 inches bigger than the one I had looked at, plus a three year warranty for a grand total of $450.

The really fun part is that that is way less than my tax return was for this year.  So God blessed me with a huge deal on a television, and I got to keep a good portion of my tax return.  Admittedly, I feel loved, smart, and really ecstatic at God’s clever means of provision.  That’s all I really had to say, but I felt that it was worth blaring to the world.

P.S. to the person who dropped a check in the mail to me, thank you very much.  Absolutely everything helps, and I was able to help out several of my friends with paying their tuition for this semester.
