Recently we purchased some new tablecloths for weddings...another little desire of my heart that God provided thru a conversation with a sweet lady in our church. But that is not what this blog is about really, but it is one aspect of it.
Saturday we had a wedding at the church & I am responsible for taking the tablecloths home & washing them. Honestly...I don't mind doing them. But as time goes on & we have more weddings I have struggled with the wear and tear on my washer & dryer...30 plus tablecloths is a lot of loads! So I thought...we have a couple in our church that has a dry cleaning service...I should ask her what she would charge to do them. Umm...and Shelly (which is a friend of mine from HS) @ Water Stone Cleaners says...how about $1/ tablecloth...I was like WHAT did you just say? HOLY COW!! And they will pick them up from the church and deliver them once they are clean. I was speechless...WOW!! That was such a blessing!!
Yesterday they delivered the TBC and they look amazing!!! WOO HOO!! The only thing is...I was suppose to have 28...and I had 27. So I called and guess what...one had fallen off the hanger & they are re-washing it and will deliver it on Monday. Talk about customer service done right people!!! I was VERY impressed with them! Use them for your dry cleaning!!!
Ok...now this just gets better really. See...I have 30 TBC & I was still missing 2 after the wedding. I searched all over the church. Called the mother of the bride...Pam... and asked her if the caterer had used any...
(SIDE NOTE: Salsa Noches did a salsa bar at the wedding...OUTSTANDING so if you want that at your wedding...party or any gathering...let me know. ) and Pam said "no" she didn't 'think so. Again...I was so baffled...sick...worried...woke up in the night and thought...I can't believe I have lost 2 brand new TBCs!!! Really!!
So...I prayed when I was awake @ 4:00 am because my children had been camping and decided to come inside....another story... "Lord...show me what I have done with those TBCs. I can't remember where I put them. I will feel so bad if they are lost...if someone has them...please let me figure it out!!"
Are you ready? This is where I wrap it all up? I know...finally right? I go to the chiropractor at 8:30 this morning. And Zena from Salsa Noches sits right next to me. We strike up a conversation...I say.."you didn't happen to use a couple of our TBCs at the wedding?" Zena: "Oh yes...I put them in the kitchen". I was like GET OUT! You are an answer to my prayers this morning!!! I have never seen Zena at the chiro before and that day...God brings her in those doors to answer my prayer about the TBCs
Badda Bing Badda BOOM! He cares for the little things in our lives....even tablecloths people!!!
I tell you this little silly Tablecloth story simply to tell you..God loves you. He cares for the little concerns that seem like a big deal to us at the time. Trust Him...talk to Him. He knows I would have worried & looked about this for awhile so he took care of it for me quick!!
