{God} Things Come to Those Who Wait | Rosanna Crown Plates

Several years ago when I was {daydreaming} about planning my wedding... I ran across these images on Iffer's Little Nest Blog.  I fell in love instantaneously and tucked these images away in my wedding file folder...

Just two years later, I found myself frantically searching for those plates in hopes of having them grace our head table at the wedding... After months and months of searching I threw in the towel and moved on to the more pressing details of our special day....

Fast forward...almost nine months into marriage... On a random Sunday afternoon... I was scrolling through Dillard's and I ran across these!!! I could not believe my eyes!!!  I began to shake and tremble... my heart skipped a beat!!! I grabbed them as quickly as I could and dashed to the register... I didn't ever bother looking at the price!

To my dismay... they were only $15.75 with 50% off!!! Yes, the plates and mugs were only $7.87 for a set of four!!! Can you say score??? That was less than $2 a plate!!! I immediately asked the sales representative to search the Internet to see if she could find me more... But it was not a successful search!!! Every store that she accessed in the system did not have any in stock!!! So in the end I purchased 8 mugs and 4 plates for less than $25!!! I will continue my search for another set of salad plates as well as the matching platter and tea pot!!! Until then... I will enjoy this glorious find!!!

My heart is so happy... All I could think was that God brought these pieces all the way to Florence just for me!!! {God} things come to those who wait!!!

"Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
—Habakkuk 2:1-3, King James Bible
