Today was a dreary, rainy Monday. I was doing my best to get some shopping done quickly so that I could get back home. I popped into a local Hancock Fabrics store. I was trying to find samples of fabric to match a chair in my bedroom. I want to recover an ottoman to match the chair. There was a lady looking at fabric in the area where I was looking. She was very sweet and friendly. She made sure that the store clerk waited on me before herself. I noticed by the sparkle in her eyes that she was of a “kindred” spirit. You just know. As I was waiting in line to check out, I noticed that another clerk was opening up to her about having to attend a funeral later in the day. She hugged her. The clerk seemed impressed that someone took time to show her that she cared. I made small talk with this dear woman as she got in line behind me. She warmly handed me a card and said that she met with a group of ladies at her house to share scriptures every week.
I left the store feeling that God had blessed me when I had least expected it. He is so good. He knows when we need reminders of His love for us.
