  1. Only one fake gold chain? I’ve bought so much fake gold, when I see the real thing, I confuse the two. Live & learn & hope that someone teaches me how to recognize the difference.

  2. Great lesson Caroline for all of us. Love when real life collides with a truth that digs deep into our life!

    Praying for you to have more time today with The Real Thing!


  3. Amen sister!!! Yes, the devil tries to pull fast ones on us, and sometimes he succeeds.

    The more time we spend with & in the truth of God’s word the more we will be able to spot & stop His lies!

  4. Fake gold in Facebook albums – I love it! I’ve often wondered if anyone besides me looks at friends’ photos and second guesses herself 🙂

    • Bernice, that is so funny — I just discovered Pawn Stars the last time I was home and I LOVE it!! I wish I could watch it here. They almost totally show it how it is! And my Pawn Shop’s version of Pops did do a little voice-raising, for sure!

  5. Caroline- Loved reading this and loved reading your story about being a pawn broker. What a cool part of your Story– and I love how you are seeing Truth in the middle of daily life and experience. Beautiful.

    • Thanks so much, Laura! It was definitely a season in the fire with some serious character-building time on the schedule! Now that it’s done, I miss it a little! 🙂 God is so good to help us see His Truth everywhere, isn’t He?
