and with it I bought a phone and a latte. Over the last couple of weeks, there was a “love offering” taken at church. This love was to be divided up amongst the pastoral staff, the youth intern, the custodial staff and me, the church office manager/toilet fixer.
I have been eyeing/daydreaming about/ not quite coveting(because that would be a sin and although I do sin on a regular basis, I try to avoid it, really I do) the iphone.
So, today, Mr Bill O. handed me an envelope, and in it was a check. Just enough to cover an iphone, with enough left over for a celebratory latte!
Truthfully, I didn’t need a check to feel the love. That is one thing about working at a church, there is a lot of love passed around, but I can tell you this:
Each time I use that spiffy phone, I will be reminded that I am very blessed, and yes, loved.
