Meant to be....
Isn't she lovely? This picture is the quintessential CANDY BAR FROM GOD! After a wonderful morning of hitting yard sales, I was parking my car when I caught sight of this beautiful painting out of the corner of my eye. It was propped on a wall and I didn't know if it was for sale or not, but I was completely captivated!
I walked over, just to get a closer look and a man came out of the garage. I told him what a fabulous painting this is and he remarked that he loves it, but his fiance hates it. Well, when the fiance hates something, that something has a shelf life! And my girl's shelf life was UP in that household! In my mind, I just KNEW he was going to be asking for at least $100 for the painting, and so I asked trying to give the impression that I was just curious. I almost dropped my teeth when he said, "Well, I was asking $25, but I'll let her go for $20."
Excuse me! Did I hear that right? I swear, I couldn't get to the bank fast enough!! He held it for me and I brought back a $20 bill and the girl was mine!
That's a great enough story right there. I mean, this amazing picture for $20???? Thank you Jesus!! But when I got it upstairs and started looking at the tag attached, I saw that it was from a company called Uttermost. I snooped around the site trying to see if this painting was on it and if I could see how much it sells for. I found the painting and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the title: Serenity. Are you kidding me?? Meant. To. Be. Nothing coincidental about this....just my Father being so sweet to me!
