One day I looked at the dark, clunky, old bureau in my bedroom, and thought about
how nice it would be to have a bureau that fit the space and lifted my
spirits.  I imagined a light-yellow, tall, thin bureau and then forgot about it.

Two days later I turned onto the main road by my house, and there was a
tall, thin, light-yellow bureau, sitting in front of a tiny building with an
“Estate Sale” sign on it!  I was so shocked I drove right by, half thinking
I’d imagined it.  I had to turn around and go back.  I told the owner of the
shop my story and decided that, even though I couldn’t afford it, I was
going to buy it.  “You probably think I’m foolish for wanting a child-like bureau instead of an antique.”  He said “you should do what makes you happy and I will even deliver it for you.”

After arranging it in its new home, we agreed that it was the perfect size
and shape and color for the room.  He asked me “what are you going to do with
the old one?”  I told him “you can have it if you want it.  It had been passed
down to my daughter’s ex-husband from his parents.”  He looked it over, smiled and said “this is over a hundred years old.  I would be glad to sell it for you and give you the balance, after deducting the cost of your new purchase.” Of course I said YES.  After he sold my bureau, I received a check from him for $35 dollars. What a deal!

I look at my sweet little bureau and smile.  I feel that God loves and supports me.  I am in awe of the mysterious connection between imagination and manifestation.
I made a sign and put it in the top drawer to remind me.  It says, Evidence.
