Giving in 2011


'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
Acts 20:35


Today I stopped at Chick-fil-a for a sandwich.   I was entering one way and there was a long line entering another way.  Just so happened I needed to be in THAT line..  No one was even willing to let me in.  I am sure you can picture the little glances and then pulling as close to the next car as they can so you can't get in.  I finally prayed and asked the Lord to have someone let me in and I would pay for that person's meal.  It happened almost before the prayer had left my lips.  I pulled into line, ordered, drove to the window to pay and also paid for the person behind me. I asked the person at the window to tell the person I paid for thank you for letting me in line! That was so much fun and such a fun way to start the new year!  I plan to look for other ways this year to bless others.  I am sure I will be given many opportunities and hope I don't miss them!  I encourage you to look for ways too.  Because it is true...It is more blessed to give than to receive!

What a beautiful act you did! I know you blessed someone today. Maybe they blessed the next person in line. Wouldn't that be cool?=)

Wow! What a gracious woman you are! Can't help but imagine the response of the person behind you as they pulled up to the window, ordered, and discovered their meal was already paid for!! Thanks for sharing this great idea! Truly you are a blessing!!
