For crafty items to tackify my sweater for the 1st annual Dooley Tacky Christmas Sweater competition.
I was perusing the floral aisle.
When a woman looked at me and waved and said hello.
From two silk and plastic flower aisles away.
I didn't recognize her. I don't think that I knew her.
But I am polite. So I waved back and said Hi.
And went back to looking at the silver sparkled poinsettias.
She came over.
And told me that the Lord had a message for me. Did I want to hear it.
Ok. I said. For I wasn't quite certain what else to say.
Perhaps she approached because I was wearing all black.
And hadn't slept the night before so the bags under my eyes were more pronounced.
She told me that I was suffering. And had been for a while.
But that the Lord wanted me to know that I would experience joy once again.
I started to cry. I told her thank you. I probably needed to hear that.
She said that she knew. That the Lord had told her.
Then she walked away.
Leaving me standing there with my basket full of rhinestones and feather boas.
And my message from the Lord.
I tried to find her. This Lord message deliverer.
To see if she was sharing this message with many others.
But she was gone. Disappeared.
It is not lost on me that this message delivery happened.
