God's blessings...big and small...

It's another day in Brenda's gratitude challenge and today I am thankful for God's blessings... big and small in my life.


Today, He surprised me twice in one hour.... First, I went out for lunch with some friends today after church.  At Arby's, I ordered a sandwich and drink and then mentioned that I would like to buy a $20 gift card (for a friend who will be traveling to a funeral tomorrow).  The girl taking my order smiled and said "if you order a gift card for $20, you can have a free combo meal."  I thanked God for picking up the tab of my lunch today. ; )


After lunch, I stopped to put gas in my truck at our Kroger gas station.  Instead of my usual $.10/gal discount, I got a $.40/gal discount!  Another surprise... a couple of free gallons of gas... thanks LORD!

  3. Two nice surprises! My mother always said that when we do something kind for others, we are blessing ourselves. For you it showed up in tangible ways!
