In January of 2007 I saw a beautiful shower curtain and shower curtain hooks at Target. I remember clearly that they were on the end of the aisle, deeply on sale. I’m talking a red sticker with another red sticker on top. If I remember correctly [and let’s be honest, when it comes to sales, I do remember correctly] the curtain costs $5 and the hooks cost $4. I know. That’s beauticulous.
How cute is that? I didn’t have a bathroom that needed a new curtain. But I loved it, and for that price? Why not. So I bought it and stored it away. [Some might call that “hording”. I disagree.]
I didn’t pray about the purchase. I didn’t ask God if it would ever be useful. I just liked it.
Then I move to Nashville in August, then I move to this new home on February 1. And I get my own bathroom that has, literally, the ugliest tile in the world.
Pink and gray? Are you for real? Who picks that? Colorblind Charlie, apparently.
But then I remember, in the recesses of my mind, that cute shower curtain I bought two years ago. Would it match? I kinda could see the color scheme in my head but I thought, “no way will it work.”
ARE. YOU. KIDDING. ME. Could it match any closer?
Y’all. How beautiful is this bathroom? I’m going to get some brown picture frames for the walls, to kinda bring in that color as well (to match the bath mat).
I know. This is the girliest post I have ever written.
But let me tell you why I’m taking time to show you pictures of my two year old shower curtain perfectly matching my two week old bathroom.
Because I think that sometimes we all could just use a little reminder that God knows everything. He knew I’d move to Nashville, He knew I’d have this bathroom, and He knew I wouldn’t be able to find a matching curtain for that tile. So He just took care of it for me with a Target sale in 2007. I guess it just makes me feel reassured that Nashville has been on His radar all along. And I’m hoping this reminds you that nothing [even coordinating bathrooms] is too tiny for His caring eye.
It’s the little things that make me love God so much that I want to give Him my life.
He knows how to perfectly speak love to my heart. That day that I bought the shower curtain, just because it was on sale, God knew it would be a future testimony of His love for me.
I guess you could say that my bathroom is a love letter. Written in pink and gray.
