This morning I felt we needed to follow up with the fire department; however, the Lord had other plans. Several of our team members wanted coffee before we headed out so we stopped at a convenience store. We prayed for two people pumping fuel before we even went inside.
After I got my coffee, I asked the cashier if I could pray for her and about 5 more employees surrounded us and asked if I could pray for them too. As they were sharing their prayer requests, 10 more employees came out from the back. We all got in a huge circle and prayed, it was sooo powerful. We had 3 follow ups from that one stop. One of the employees shared that they have been having a morning devotion and it has helped unify the staff.
As we set off towards our next destination, one of the team members said they had a dream about a painted tree. At that moment, I saw the “Our Art Works” sign and another team member said she was the assistant manager there. As we walked up, I noticed the skull at the doorway. Someone suggested we go and buy a pumpkin and offer it as a trade. It just so happened that I still had the pumpkin in my trunk from the day before!
One of the team members saw several paintings of butterflies. She had just shared a story about the significance of butterflies to her and showed us a photograph of a specific butterfly. The assistant manager saw the photo and stated she had painted a butterfly with the exact same colors. She also had painted a tree to represent her new family. We each put our finger print on her tree as a representation of being a part of her forever family. We were amazed by our Heavenly Father’s attention to even the smallest of details.
