Today I said goodbye to a 6 year employee and a friend. Many of you who visit A Spot For Tea have been served tea in the Queen's Room and in the Red Room by Della. I told her today as we hugged goodbye that A Spot For Tea became what it is today in part because of her and her willingness to serve others with the love of Christ.
Many times I would pull into the parking lot and Della would be sitting in her car praying for A Spot For Tea and the day ahead before she walked through the doors. One thing I came to love about Della was her ability to pray for whatever season or emergency we were going through. She truly was a prayer warrior for the tearoom and for me personally.
Della's husband Ted, worked for a contractor that worked for Homeland Security and he recently got transferred to Corpus Christi, Texas. Della will soon be living on the beach in South Texas. We will miss her very much.
How do you say thank you for that?
Della you exemplify Colossians 3:23 "Whatever you do, work at it with your heart, as working for the Lord not for men."
