God's Perfect Timing
(Feb. 2021) A customer came in for the very first time with her sister visiting from Texas. We were actually already closed for the day; lights off, doors locked. As my husband was approaching the main door to get our sign from the sidewalk, two women about to come into the main lobby asked if we were closing. My husband responded, "Yes, but we will open so you can come in." I re-opened the gift shop and turned on some music. Nothing like shopping with beautiful music.
They walked around asking questions and commenting as they took in the photography and inspirational gifts.
Within the 30 minutes of their visit, I had learned from one of them that she was going through a tough time and heavy-hearted due to her pet of 12-years was going through some serious health issues and not sure what would happen. We talked a little more and tried to give some comfort. They continued walking around and found various items to bless others. After they checked out and as they were leaving, the other woman turned around and said, "This place has given me so much peace!"
As you would imagine, my husband and I were delighted to hear such feedback, and I responded, "Purpose served!" And she said, "Yes, mission accomplished!"
Her sister said, "I'm going back to Texas, and I'm going to share this place and your website with my church so they can support what you do. This is a wonderful place!"
Whether it's a person or a pet who suffers, we can all understand the importance to comfort in every situation.
Father, thank You for the honor and privilege to hear other's stories and serve in this manner to comfort, bring hope, and inspire!
If you believe and want to lend support, will you let your family and friends know about us?
