No 130 is full of windows and glass doors. Getting curtains for all of them was going to be costly. I was keen to get good curtains that will keep away the draught especially during the winter months. I had red velvet curtains in mind. I started looking up online to check the prices of curtains and realised that velvet curtains were double the price of ordinary curtains. I was keen to have the curtains up ASAP to get some privacy.
Just out of the blue, the Minister received a phone call from a lady whom he had met a few weeks earlier. She was ringing to ask if we needed curtains?! A friend of hers was downsizing and she had curtains that she wanted to give away to a good home! I was over the moon when I heard that.
A few days later, the curtains were delivered to us. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that some of the curtains were red velvet!
They had been freshly laundered and looked beautiful. Amazingly they fitted perfectly. It was the same for all the other curtains. It felt like as if the curtains were specially tailor made for No.130. The windows and glass doors now all have curtains.
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? – Matthew 6:26
