For over two years, I've been saving for a SLR camera. We (Anna and I) love photography and have practiced it quite a bit the past few years. But when the camera is a point and shoot, it just isn't the same as having an SLR. The beginning of this year, Anna got in on saving for it too and we both started scraping all our pennies together! We prayed that God would provide us with the perfect one.
A couple months ago, I started looking into how much the kind of camera I liked would cost. Whew! They sure are expensive! I decided that I wasn’t going to pay retail price because Anna and I agreed that wouldn’t be good use of money.
So I started looking on eBay.
I found tons of the type I wanted, but they consistently went for a price that was too high. It was frustrating, but Anna and I kept looking. And when the bids went above our max price, we knew God had something better for us. HE is involved in all the little details of our lives!
Then I found one, and won the bid. But when the seller didn’t ship the item, I contacted them and found out that they were issuing me a refund because they “didn’t have the item they described in stock”. That was a big bummer.
Only two days later, I found another one, and won the bid… for half the retail price! And for the photgraphers that want to know the details, it's a Canon t1i. And that’s what came in the mail yesterday! It’s so exciting to finally have one, and we’re thankful God answered our prayers! Our siblings are very, very happy about it too and constantly want their picture taken. [grin]
