Vintage Black Friday

A couple weeks ago I got on a kick for black candles. But I didn't want new candles. I wanted old and sorta grungy candles. I guess they fit my rustic romantic theme. When I couldn't find the style that I wanted, I bought them new and rubbed them with ground cinnamon to make them look old. It didn't effect the scent of the candle when it burned because the inside is untouched. Now, the question is this - what made me think that I could buy "old" candles? And I actually spent a week looking for them.
P.S. If you have a moment... My sister is having surgery today. I would sure appreciate if you'd join me in praying for her.

  1. Yes, I will be praying for your sister and the doctors and assistants that they may have Wisdom from the Lord. I'll be expecting a good report about her, in Jesus' name.

    And Bless Your Heart too...
