Blessings from Above

When we have a new family or single lady that comes to the Open Door Mission’s Lydia House I have the privledge to welcome them when they first arrive. I make sure most of their immediate needs are met; making sure that they have enough linens and toiletries and help them find clothing at the Timberlake Outreach Center. Well, one day I was really tired after shopping and I was heading out the door, (speeding walking) when one of the ladies that had just arrived stopped me. Her and I had been shopping for her family that day and thanked me for the items that I had brought back for her and her little girl. As I looked down, I saw the little girl had on one of the outfits that I had brought back for her and she looked so cute. The little girl said in the cutest little voice “Thank you Ms Iris” and that touched me and uplifted me as well. After that I was not so tired after all. Now I try hard not to get caught up in the WORK part of my job but work hard at the service part of my job.
