Deal of the Century!!

Knowing that we were most likely heading into full-time ministry soon, Geoff's parents gave Geoff a check for $100 to put towards a new suit for Christmas. Now, if you're suit shopping, you usually wait for a sale, and even with a good sale, $100 doesn't go too far on a nice suit. I had been shopping in the mall, and saw that one of the department stores was having a 50% off sale on all their suits. So, I drug Geoff in to check it out, but Maleia needed to eat soon. After feeding her, I asked if he wanted to go back and look some more, but he had pretty much seen everything, and hadn't like anything. So, we headed to J.C. Penney's to look.

We walked into the section, and I saw a clearance sign. It stated $14.97. On the rack were dress pants, and many many suit coats! Geoff didn't believe it and he asked the clerk to confirm. Yup, EVERYTHING was $14.97 each!!
So, we walked away with 4 suit coats and a pair of pants for $14.97 each with regular prices of $200.00 each. Then Geoff picked up an expensive pair of pants for $25. The regular price of all of these would have been $870.00, and we paid $98.00! We praise the Lord on such a great find that He led us to! Geoff has doubled his suit choices, and will have plenty of choices now that he needs to wear these more often. It just seemed like the Lord was saying that He has led us to this assistant position & He will take care of all the little things.
