She looked over the display of sale-priced flip flops. The children in Honduras need these. She wondered which ones would hold up best and which would be best for mountain walking. The boy in the boots could really use a pair. His feet. Oh, his feet. The constant moisture and the lack of socks had left his feet in such horrible condition. He needs these flip flops if only to air his feet out from time to time.

But, the sale price is still $9.00. Surely there would be a better deal at another store. Maybe later in the summer. $9.00. Kinda steep.

Her attention was drawn to the silver sale down the aisle. All the little charms and necklaces on sale: half price.
She found a little silver cross. $9.00. Not bad. Sterling silver. It would be nice on her charm bracelet. It would show her love for God. She purchased it and took it home.

The little silver cross hangs on the bracelet. But, God would have helped the child.
