The Orange Flower
Does anything in life happen randomly or as coincidence? To be honest with you, I’m not sure. What I am sure of is that there are many things in life that are not. The following is a true story of another very interesting event that happened at my shop in Galveston a few days ago. It involves divine timing . . . and an orange flower.
Sometime last week a very nice couple stopped by the shop in Galveston and we had a wonderful conversation about rocks, crystals and other spiritually related stuff. They shopped a bit and when all was done, I walked them to the door (which, by the way, I don’t often do).
As they walked out the door, we all noticed a bright orange flower just outside the threshold of the shop. The gentleman initially thought it belonged to part of my decorations so he bent over to pick it up. When he realized what it was, he got a very puzzled expression on his face and looked at his wife.
They both excitedly began to tell me a story. Just prior to coming into my shop, this couple had stopped outside the shop next door to photograph a plant with beautiful bright orange flowers. It was to serve as a reminder for them as they wanted to have one at their new home.
As we talked, I found out that this was not just an ordinary plant to them but was to serve as a beautiful reminder to the woman. This was the same plant that was located in the front yard of a very special person that lived in the Phillipines. As they continued with the details, I began to understand the significance. You see, that very special person from the Phillipines . . . was her mother.
