Cream Cheese Tart

July 22, 2013

A stunning wake up call came to me in the form of my curling iron.

I am so materialistic. I may sometimes make excuses and think I’m not as bad as this or that person, but I am. It’s remarkable how quickly my eyes adjust to the “new things” around our apartment. I wanted a rug for our living room super bad. Most every time I walked through, I’d think “this room NEEEEEDS a rug.” And then we got one!, for a great, responsible price.

One week later, my vision has adjusted and now I’m thinking, “this room NEEEEEEDS a bookshelf.”

This isn’t completely bad. It’s fine for me to have goals for projects to make our home beautiful. I do need to keep tabs, however, on if I’m wanting to acquire more stuff for the sake of more stuff or to impress others. I pray that God would purify the motives of my heart in all things.

This all came to a head (humorously) when I decided I wanted a 1.25″ curling iron for looser curls than my 1″ barrel. My desire for it was kind of ramping up. I was thinking about asking David if I could get it. And then, I found in my closet I ALREADY OWNED A 1.25″ BARRELED CURLING IRON. I bought it back in college and forgot about it. I am so blessed with stuff I am capable of coveting things I ALREADY OWN. Yikes.
