This seems to be a time for new beginnings. New web site coming up. New flat monitor, new blog, and a new Heaven banking account!
I opened up a new checking account at Wells Fargo through the internet. I was dazzled with the marvelous service! The manager called me personally to verify everything. And he was so interested in Heavenletters. He asked how we make our income. Donations primarily, I said, and I told him about the new server given to us as a gift and all the volunteers. The banker told me all the perks they could offer, like they would accept credit cards for payments to Heaven and could give us some kind of special pack.
I don’t know about you, but I never opened a bank account where I was treated like an important person before. I don’t know if I’ve ever been to any business where I was so welcomed. There even was a paper I hadn’t signed, and they Fed-exed it to me!!! Fed-exed! And they included a return paid Fed X envelope for me to return the signed paper in! This was SERVICE. This is how everyone in the world deserves to be treated. Could this bank be enlightened and know that we are all guests and representatives of God?
Then, as I was just reading over the papers, I noticed something they must have mis-typed. It said Heaven’s income was $100,000 per year. My heart sank. I thought, they think we’re an affluent customer. That’s why the royal carpet. And they’re going to be so disappointed. I emailed the nice banker right away and told him that our income was pretty well under $100,000. Well, far far under. Embarrassingly under. I couldn’t even get the words out.
I wanted to be mistaken. I wanted this bank to give this dazzling service to every customer and to continue to give it to Heavenletters whether we’re affluent financially or not. But even if this great service didn’t continue, I was grateful to this bank manager for giving me this experience, for he reminded me of the great value of treating everyone like a king or queen. I also felt grateful to God Who could have been giving us a sign of the good to come, that His words will be known and valued worldwide, and all of His children treated right.
I am sure a bank counts its worth in terms of profit. I realize that I measure Heaven’s success in terms of the number of subscribers. The more subscribers, the more success. Maybe Heavenletters was as successful with its thirteen or so original subscribers as it is now with two thousand. Maybe the point isn’t numbers of subscribers any more than it is money. Maybe instead of counting Heavensubscribers, it would be better to count good service (love) given, not how many new subscribers came here today (though I love it) but what have I given today that has uplifted even one single heart?
May I learn to welcome each subscriber to Heavenletters just as the bank manager welcomed Heavenletters, and may I do this purely from love of God and desire to return to Him some of the goodness He has given.
Please tell me what I, or any of the people who are serving Heavenletters, can do for you that we may give you the honor you deserve, make you happy, let you know how truly welcome you are and how grateful we are for your being here.
P.S. Hurray! The great service continues. Three cheers for Wells Fargo and Reed Romney!
