Special Delivery For B

I don't usually blog on Sundays but I have to tell on God today : ) He's stunned me, knocked my socks off, blew me away and all of this happened before lunch!

At Tea for Two , eight ladies checked the information card at their table saying they were interested in Bible Study and nine others indicated they wanted to know MORE about Jesus in their life. I concealed the tea girl's personal information on the card above. It was filled out completely in pencil except for the red mark by knowing Jesus in her life. I believe she added that red mark later in the tea. Praise God! These women are hungry and we are called to feed them.

This morning, as I was getting ready for church, I questioned what to do for the Tea for Two ladies. How were we going to do Bible Study in the village? What did the Lord want for them? I thought about possibly downloading study material and making folders for the ladies. Tea for Two is not an official ministry funded by my church, which means resources are on us or so I thought.

At church today, my friend Leslie, sat beside me. She showed me the folders you see in the photo. She wondered if Kathy, a ministry leader sitting in front of us might need them for spiritual retreats or maybe I could use them? I knew the answer to that question immediately. (Sorry Kathy.)

Tell me.... who brings a school supply box with folders into a church service!!! God's messenger, that's who. The folders had been in her car for three months but today the timing was perfect for delivery. They found their purpose and the Lord answered many questions I have been asking in a bouquet of flower folders.

Yes, He speaks in all kinds of ways. This is not really about the cost of the folders. He is confirming my path to continue in the village. I thought the village was on the way to my promise land and now I am sure of it. Thank you for the flowers.

"Lord, they are beautiful!!!! You didn't have to do that, but I love them and You" said B His Girl. You make my heart sing!
