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!


  1. HOW wonderful~and all b/c you were thinking of a friend God blessed you! He has some wonderful surprises for us, doesn't He? Have a great evening! HUGS!!

  2. Sometimes those small unexpected blessings really mean a lot, don't they? :)

  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!

  4. Whoohoo! I love little surprises like that. :)


Thank you for your kind words!
